PCI-E 2.0 aims to offer twice as much bandwidth

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Wait a second I dont think even the Bandwidth of the Current PCI-E is fully Utilized..Or am i wrong ?

Quote:
WE'VE SEEN SOME PCIe 1.1 specifications in the wild but we wanted to sniff around to see what is going on with the PCIe 2.0 specification. PCIe 1.1 is a minor improvement but the 2.0 should offer plenty more than the current PCI 1.0 specification.
PCIe 2.0 will provide faster signalling which doubles the bit rate from 2.5GT/s to 5GT/s. It simply means more bandwidth. Maybe someone could tell us what GT/s stands for

isn't this same thing as coming up with SATAll and SATAlll..

Uh, kinda. More bandwidth = more speed. And users love speedy comps.

Wow, technology moves way to fast. The PCI-E technology isn't fully utilized and already a new platform is implimented. But I guess that is the same with SATA, IDE, and SATA 3.0.

I've given up trying to catch up to the pace of technology, the technology curve just keeps growing exponentially.

only when there is a lack of bandwidth - i seriously doubt even a 8800GTX has the power to generate more data than the slot can take

But this is a classic example of "if you build it they will come" GPU manufacturers, now are beginning to worry about the speeds on pci-e x16. But with the advancements the GPU makers will create hardware to further strain/utilize the current and future PCI-E architecture.

This is bad news for RD600. I really dont want to buy a new mobo just to find out it utilizes an old spec. D'oh. DFI just cant win with this chipset.

Wow. That's great... Now we can have another graphics format that STILL doesn't use up all its bandwidth and costs more!

You guys dont see the benefits? I do.

More bandwidth means it can have less channels for the PCI-E, or share a PCI-E channel between multiple slots, which I think would decrease costs slightly or help unify SLI or crossfire moreso, and with PPU's coming it could put even less strain on the system.

PPU's could be the only thing that I see an advantage in...
