The AMD platform already fully supports PCIe 4.0, and Intel is slowly keeping up, such as the previously released data center-grade SSD P7-P5500/P5600, and the Tiger Lake 11 Core for thin versions, while rocket Lake, which will be officially released next March, will join PCIe 4.0 for the first time.
PcIe 4.0 is the most direct use for the average user for SSDs and graphics cards, especially the former, which provide flying performance improvements.
Often can get the new hardware in advance of the Bay netizens @ITCooker廚 room guy and preempted a Walk Lake, and is a high-end version of 125W, but the specific situation was not disclosed.
He found an Asrock Z490 Taichi motherboard, a Seagate Coldplay 520 SSD, and successfully turned on PCIe 4.0 x4 mode, with a measured continuous read speed of an infinite approximate of 5GB/s and a continuous write of more than 4.2GB/s.
Our fast technology has previously tested the Seagate Coldplay 520 on a platform consisting of the Rye Dragon 9 3900X and X570, resulting in a speed of 5.0GB/s and 4.4GB/s. Intel here, although the write speed is slightly worse, but after all, is still a sample, the follow-up will certainly be better optimized.

In addition, the user also tested an RX 5700 XT graphics card, FurMark high-load roaster when successfully running in PCIe 4.0 x16 mode.
Intel’s official and leak roadmap confirms that the Rocket Lake processor will be released in March next year, with new Z590, H570, B560, H510 chipset boards that will natively support PCIe 4.0, but now the Z490 motherboards of manufacturers such as Gyeon have also supported PCIe 4.0 in hardware design, which can be turned on directly with 11th-generation Core in the future.
Rocket Lake continues the 14nm manufacturing process, but upgrades the new CPU architecture, Xe GPU architecture, up to 8 core 16 threads, up to TDP 125W, and interface continuation LGA1200.
