AnandTech writes PCI-SIG has reached version 0.5 of the PCI Express 6.0 standard. Expected to be finalized next year, PCI Express 6.0 promises another doubling of the bandwidth versus PCI Express 5.0, which in turn offers double the bandwidth of PCI Express 4.0.
The publication of version 0.5 of the PCIe 6.0 specification is essentially the final call for submissions of the new features by PCI-SIG member companies. Furthermore, with the first draft available, companies can start designing test silicon to ensure that everything works and even begin preliminary work on commercial chips.

The next milestone for the PCIe 6.0 specification will be the upcoming PCI-SIG Developers Conference 2020 in early June, where the group plans to present deep dives into the features of the technology.
