"It is possible that PCIe 4.0 will be an outdated spec"? It already is by 5.0! I hope 5.0 catches on quickly but 6.0 can wait. I guess it depends how easy it would be to implement the PAM4 encoding scheme in PCI.

PCIE 4.0 is already more expensive to implement. You really need a chipset made on a 10nm/7nm process to be efficient enough to not need active cooling. Then you have increased signaling so you need short clean traces which can increase motherboard layers all making it more costly.

PCIE 5.0 is going into servers. Intel and AMD are not bringing PCIE 5.0 into desktops in the near future as its complete overkill and is very costly right now. PCIE 6.0 is also going to live in server for many years as well.
