PCI Express 7.0 Promises Data Transfer Revolution

This unrelenting effort is especially obvious in data centres, HPC systems, and new sectors like AI and ML

This article discusses the relevance of the draft standard, PCI express 7.0’s core features and ambitions

A well-defined specification outlines a technology’s technical needs and functions

The omnipresent interface connects computer components like graphics cards, SSDs

The most compelling feature of PCIe 7.0 is its planned data transfer rate of a remarkable 128 GT/s  per lane

The maintenance of a clean and reliable signal across longer distances becomes very important at these high speeds

PCI Express 7.0 lays a substantial emphasis on optimising channel factors, such as cable characteristics and signal equalisation algorithms
