Serve The Home writes AMD's upcoming second-generation EPYC "Rome" CPUs will likely feature over 160 PCI Express 4.0 lanes. This means AMD will not only have twice as many cores per socket as Intel's newest lineup, but also triple the PCIe bandwidth in dual-socket systems:
In this article, we are going to discuss why the AMD EPYC “Rome” generation will likely see 160x PCIe Gen4 lanes plus likely additional lane(s) for a necessary function. While all of our previous material focused on 128x PCIe lanes, in single and dual socket configurations for AMD EPYC, we are expecting a big change in 2019 with the new generations and one that Intel fully failed to address with its release this week. Intel instead focused on bringing out a large portfolio instead of addressing the fact that it is about to have a competitor with twice as many cores per socket and well over 3x the PCIe bandwidth in mainstream dual-socket systems.
