<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">PCI Express, version 1.0 which arrived in 2003, is about to enter the next generation with version 2.0. PCI Express 2.0 brings a bevy of changes, starting with a speed boost, according to the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG) that governs the technology. The PCI-SIG has released a penultimate edition of the basic PCI Express 2.0 specification to its members in version for comments, and the final version is due after a 60-day comment period. The central feature of the base version of PCI Express 2.0 is a speed boost. It doubles each serial line's data transfer rate from 2.5 gigabits per second to 5Gpbs. But future enhancements also are in the works. One will support high-end graphics cards that slurp 225 or 300 watts of power. Finally, a longer-term effort, code-named Geneseo, will let coprocessor cards such as graphics or encryption accelerators be tightly connected to central processors.</td>

When is it due to arrive? And will it be a whole new slot/design or can we still use the same cards with the updated bus architecture?

Ok so it says that there with be a slot for the next-gen cards that slurp 250-300w of power, and this type will be out in about 60 days from now?<br />
<br />
So...basically the G80 will require PCI-E 2.0, yet no mobos will have it?<br />
<br />
I'm confused.

</div>It wont require it, that is why it has two PCIe (6-pin) power connectors.

</div>I doubt it will require any upgrades. Just like how you could put an AGP 8X card into an AGP 4X slot and vice-versa.
