AMD, whether server or desktop, whether processor, graphics card or motherboard, has full support for PCIe 4.0, Intel side of the side has repeatedly stressed that PCIe 4.0 is useless for the game, but in other areas the body is still honest, such as Stratix 10 FPGA has supportpcie 4.0, the first 100GbE 101111100-meganet card Ethernet 800 series also supports PCIe 4.0.
Recently, Frank Ober, Intel’s technology marketing performance engineer, revealed that Intel’s next generation, Aitor SSD Alder Stream, will support PCIe 4.0, and that he is providing samples to developers that are clearly ready for final commissioning and optimization.
At the end of November last year, when fast technology visited the Intel Fab 68 Dalian plant, it learned a lot about the next generation of AoTeng SSD, such as IOPS is expected to be as high as 1.3 million, is now the generation of Aoten SSD about three times, is more than four times the NAND flash drive, and the failure rate is very low, Only about one-in-50 of NAND flash memory, as a trick of the delay is even more dust-dead, especially under high parallel loads such as 16 threads.
The only problem is that intel, even if it does a PCIe 4.0 SSD, now faces a dilemma where there is nowhere to be found, after all, its own platform does not now support PCIe 4.0.
But as things stand, Intel doesn’t seem to have to wait long to fully get on PCIe 4.0.
According to the roadmap, Intel’s server platform was updated with 14nm Cooper Lake in the first half of this year, and it has been reported that it will become Intel’s first PCIe 4.0-enabled platform, which is why it will be replaced with the new LGA4189 interface, which is compatible with the 10nm Ice Lake in the second half of the year. The latter will support PCIe 4.0 almost 100 percent.
Considering that Aoten SSDs are a priority server-oriented, data center platform, by cooper Lake in the first half of this year later in the large-scale launch, PCIe 4.0’s Aoten SSD should also be ready, the timing is very precise.
On the consumer side, this year’s second-generation 10nm Tiger Lake mobile platform is expected to support PCIe 4.0, and the desktop platform will be as fast as next year’s Rocket Lake, and it will not be confirmed.
Fast Tech has arrived in Las Vegas, and after two days of Intel’s launch, there will almost certainly be more details about future server platforms, perhaps referring to PCIe 4.0.
