The PCI Express 2.0 specification extends the data rate of PCI Express to 5GT/s (5GHz) in a manner compatible with the existing PCI Express 1.1 specifications that support 2.5GT/s (2.5GHz) signaling. There are a number of improvements made to the protocol and software layers of the architecture – a product of more than three years of design experience by the PCI-SIG members.
Currently, the Intel P35 chipset already supports the PCI Express 2.0 spec. Upcoming new chipset AMD RD790 will also support this new spec.
