Default New PCI 3.0 Specs

The new specification for PCI 3.0 was just released.

Quote:
"PCIe 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 8GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled over PCIe 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces. The key requirement for evolving the PCIe architecture is to continue to provide performance scaling consistent with bandwidth demand from leading applications with low cost, low power and minimal perturbations at the platform level. One of the main factors in the wide adoption of the PCIe architecture is its sensitivity to high-volume manufacturing materials and tolerances such as FR4 boards, low-cost clock sources, connectors and so on. In providing full compatibility, the same topologies and channel reach as in PCIe 2.0 are supported for both client and server configurations. Another important requirement is the manufacturability of products using the most widely available silicon process technology. For the PCIe 3.0 architecture, the PCI-SIG believes a 65nm process or better will be required to optimize on silicon area and power."

I hope they allow more than 75w of power considering the 6990 and 590 both break the pci-e 2.0 spec

At least we won't have to throw out our PCIe 2.0 cards when we get a new MB
