GeForce RTX 40 series rumored to stick with a PCIe 4.0 interface

PCIe 5.0 made its debut with Intel’s 12th gen CPU and motherboard range, and AMD is set to add support to its Zen 4 platform later this year. It was widely assumed that next gen graphics cards would support PCIe 5.0, but a new rumor suggests that Nvidia’s next gen Ada GPUs will not support the new standard.

The rumor comes from the reliable kopite7kimi (via Videocardz). It’s a bit of a surprise given that Nvidia’s enterprise-oriented Hopper architecture does support PCIe 5.0. There’s also the fact that RTX 40 will support 12+4 pin 12VHPWR PCIe 5.0 power connectors. But then, so does the RTX 3090 Ti and that certainly doesn’t support PCIe 5.0.
