PCI Express 2.0

    According to Reg Hardware , PCI SIG has completed the development of version 2.0 of the basic specification of the PCI Express standard. As a result, we managed to double the signaling speed from 2.5Gbps to 5Gbps, which allowed us to achieve a speed of 16Gbps on the x16 interface.

    PCIe 2.0 is declared compatible with PCIe 1.1, so older video cards can also work with computers equipped with new interfaces. Intel is going to release the first chipsets with support for PCIe 2.0 in the Bearlake family in the next quarter of this year.
