PCI SIG announced at the end of June that it formed a group for the research for the fourth generation of the PCI Express standard. That team included members of companies such as Intel, AMD, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.
For the organization PCI-SIG (Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group) in charge of the creation of the PCI standards, the final PCIe 4.0 standard will be ready by 2014 for the manufacturers to create products this year to be released in 2015.
