Rumored GeForce RTX 40 series will stick to PCIe 4.0 interface

PCIe 5.0 debuted in Intel’s 12th-generation CPU and motherboard lineup, and AMD will add support to its Zen 4 platform later this year. It is widely believed that the next generation of graphics cards will support PCIe 5.0, but new rumors suggest that Nvidia’s next-generation Ada GPUs will not support the new standard.

Rumors come from reliable kopite7kimi (pass video card). That’s a bit surprising, given that Nvidia’s enterprise-oriented Hopper architecture does support PCIe 5.0. There is also the fact that the RTX 40 will support a 12+4 pin 12VHPWR PCIe 5.0 power connector. However, the same goes for the RTX 3090 Ti, and it certainly doesn’t support PCIe 5.0.
