EK Launches PCIe 4.0 X16 Riser Cable

EK, is launching a stand-alone PCIe 4.0 X16 riser cable. This premium high-speed cable is compatible with all modern motherboards. That includes those based on Z590, Z690, X570, and B550 chipsets. It was tested with both the RX 6000 series AMD GPUs and RTX 30 series NVIDIA GPUs. Although a true PCIe 4.0 riser cable, it is 100% compatible with PCIe 3.0 standard.

This high-speed 4.0 GPU riser cable features improved individual PCIe laneway shielding that blocks unwanted external EMI/RFI and interference between channels. EK-Loop PCI-E 4.0 Riser Cable is designed to match the PCIe impedance differential of 85 ohms. Signals that are traveling between the motherboard and the GPU are matched at the proper frequency without any capacitors in the cable that would introduce a potential point of failure and result in a less compact riser.
4-layer PCB with gold-plating was chosen for the best signal integrity and lifespan of the product. It was engineered with heavy-duty PCB/cable junctions to ensure increased durability. It is 200 mm long and easily bends thanks to the flexible shielding of its wires. Flexibility comes extremely useful in tight-fit scenarios like small form factor (ITX) cases, where it truly shines. It has a 90° right-angle connector with a latch.

This GPU riser cable is compatible with EK-Loop Vertical GPU Holder and EK-Loop Vertical GPU Holder - Shifted.

Availability and Pricing

The EK-Loop PCI-E 4.0 Riser Cable is available for order through the EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network.

Err, what? This is literally a Linkup cable that has been available on amazon for months in variety of sizes and even colors. It even says linkup on the cable in EK pictures. Maybe launched isn't the proper term in this context.

Yeah, I wouldn't buy this from EK. I got mine from Linkup for a much better price and the orientation I needed. Anything else is trash in comparison.
