Neat. Seems there is a market for the increased bandwidth on the server side of computing. And that is an enormous market if ever there was one.

Do any developers beyond Microsoft, Apple, and some of the larger server developers like Oracle and Amazon even need test samples for SSD's? I would think for those customers Intel could muster up complete test systems for them.

Doesn't state what Intel uses for their internal testing. It only states that developers require PCIe 4.0 to take full advantage of the drives.

AMD still uses Intel processors to test their video cards and drivers so something about that sarcastic statement must be true.
They are slowly switching to Zen. I am sure they have to use Zen2 + X570 for Gen4 testing. 2-3 years ago they had no choice but to use Intel.

With the rumored new socket coming out, I don't see why Intel's next gen doesn't use PCI 4.0. I'm sure I speaking to the choir when I point out that Intel's stunted development and growth had nothing to do with their capability and everything to do with a lack of competition. These next 5 years will be interesting in the CPU market. I wish I could say the same for GPU's...

Ahhh Techspot aka HardwareUnboxed... where were they when AMD was using Intel CPUs to test out their Radeon cards? I pretty much unsubscribed to their channel months ago.

Yeah, they're blaming it on super computer and data center upgrades.

All the posts about " AMD used Intel CPUs to test video cards" are a weak rebuttal to this situation. They did that for performance numbers, not because they were behind in pcie specifications.

The irony here is Intel is on pcie 3.0 still..even new stuff releasing short term. Why are they developing pcie 4.0 ssds when they don't even have pcie4.0 platforms yet?

Wait so Intel's 10 series won't even have pcie4? That seems kinda rediculous.

Intel's 10 series has been out for a while.

Or did you mean their other 10 series?

Or the other one?

Or ... the other one?
