[TechSpot] Intel is prototyping PCIe 4.0 SSDs, but needs AMD CPUs to test them

Quote:
AMD became the first to support PCIe 4.0 with third-generation Ryzen. While at launch the upgrade over Intel’s PCIe 3.0 was mostly academic, a slew of PCIe 4.0 SSDs have since been released with speeds almost twice as fast as previous generations. Intel’s CPU department might not have seen that as a big deal but apparently, their storage division does.

Intel’s technical marketing performance engineer Frank Ober tweeted that Intel is willing to send out PCIe 4.0 SSDs to developers. But the developers will need PCIe 4.0 CPUs to take full advantage of them.

Kinda funny news. I didn't know PCIe 4.0 SSDs were already hitting the market. SSDs have really advanced/gotten cheaper in the last year or so.

Well, to be fair, AMD would also have to use Intel tech in order to test this.

forecasters state memory ICs will be up 40% buy the end of the year, so inexpensive, at the moment, on the low end

Even funnier: it'll likely be the x570 motherboard owners who do the testing. In the same vein as those who moved to Win 10 and/or NVIDIA RTX cards, or just about anything nowadays.

Gotta love the state of quality the art today.

But... but.. PCIE4.0 is useless, and Intel is so much faster in gaming so AMD is irrelevant!!! /Intel shill /s

In years gone by, during the Bulldozer era, AMD would test video cards using Intel CPU's. The irony on both sides is delicious.

I was under the impression that other manufacturers like Samsung already had this?

Source is wrong, IBM was the first to support PCIe 4.0 support.

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.
