Default PCI Express 3.0 base spec to be ready by November

Now that newer PCs are rocking PCI Express 2.0 slots, it's time for an upgrade, don't you think? EE Times reports that PCI-SIG will complete the PCI Express 3.0 base spec by November, having released a 0.9 version of the specification for review about a month ago.

PCIe 3.0 will enable data rates up to 8GT/s. According to PCI-SIG, that will translate into top speeds of 1GB/s per lane per direction, or 32GB/s for a x16 link—essentially twice as fast as PCIe 2.0 and four times as fast as the first-gen standard. EE Times expects PCIe 3.0 to come in handy for high-end graphics cards, upcoming 40Gbps Ethernet adapters, and high-end solid-state drives.

seeing as PCI 2.0 x4 is enough for 480GTX in SLI, I don't think so, at least not in the very near future.
