The rumored Rocket Lake CPUs are pretty much confirmed to support PCIe 4.0 - otherwise there would be no reason for Z490 motherboards to be built for it. When they will arrive is an open question though. Plenty of rumors, nothing solid.

Obviously motherboard vendors will want to cash in on PCIe 4.0, so I expect there will be new options to spend your money on. Whether that makes sense is a different thing

i think it wouldn't be stable on mobos that'd lack pcb layers or something.

More or less; there would be no way of guaranteeing its stability as the design was never tested and verified for those speeds. In other words they might have ended up in a situation where it's stable for 90% of users but the rest get odd crashes or errors, which would be quite a bad situation to be in. It would just reflect badly on everyone involved.

Do you intend to adopt pciex4 in GPU testing at some point?

"at some point", absolutely
Nice I ask , I am intrigued as to the performance scaling of what's in the works from everyone.

It wasn't that it wasn't stable, the reason AMD didn't do it, was because the quality difference between the 400-series boards was too great, so too many boards wouldn't pass the PCIe SIG certification and thus couldn't meet the PCIe 4.0 spec. As such, rather than letting some boards support it, AMD simply said they wouldn't allow it a at all, to reduce any kind of user backlash. Not that they didn't manage to screw up later, but hey...

DOES ANYONE know if theres going to be a new release on intel motherboards for pcie 4.0?:rockout:
Yes, the 500-series chipsets. The board makers are already in the planning stage of their products based on the 500-series chipsets.
