Basically, industry sources claim Intel is struggling to implement PCI Express 4.0 support in the chipsets that will accompany the Ice Lake architecture:
Intel’s struggle to bring 10nm processors to the market has been well documented. During CES, there was some discussion around Ice Lake but very little was said about the accompanying chipset. We have heard through our industry sources (who will remain anonymous) that Intel is struggling in this area, with the upgrade to PCIe 4.0 being an issue in particular. There is some concern that this will end up causing more delays for Intel’s 10nm launch.Intel still has a lot of time to fix things, so far now take this with a grain of salt.
