pci express“THE PCI-SIG is pleased to announce that it has launched the latest version PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0“, says a spokesperson in an email. An official announcement by the SIG will be disclosed on Thursday.

THE SIG (Special Interest Group – Special interest group) had plenty of time to specify and receive final approval. At a press conference in June, the President of the PCI SIG, Al Yanes, said he had met with the Chairman of the Working Group, and that “We're almost done, technically.”

THE PCI Express 3.0 is the next-generation PCI Express bus, a via principal de dados das placas de vídeo e outras technologies de expansão dos PCs de hoje. The PCIe 2.0 encodes the data using 8 or 10 bits, where the transfer of data revolves around the 5 Gigabits per second, a metric that is governed by the number of leads assigned to channel (most video cards use a slot 16 vias, or x 16).

The companies will leverage PCI Express 3.0 in the foreground, aiming at its implementation on routers and switches, including internet connections up 40 Gigabits, Yanes said, in June. Graphics chip companies also will take advantage (and very) desta technology.

Is the question: quando poderemos comprar produtos com esta technology? The PCI SIG needs a formal process of certification (Unlike organizations such as the Wi-Fi Alliance, inserting your logo on products that are in their compatibility tests), but will start the testing process at the beginning of 2011.

Yanes said that a “integrated list” or, in his words, “technology certification” would be released probably at the end of the second quarter of 2011, with all companies that pass the tests.

Manufacturers are free to do whatever they want. However, companies can develop PCIe-based boards 3.0 After the first quarter of 2011.
