I'd expect using just two PCIe 4.0 lanes will be a popular usage. This will offer the same performance as x4 on PCIe 3.0 while being more accomodating of systems with few lanes available. As NVMe SSDs move further into the mainstream, this will be an important cost saver.

Seriously, 2020 for Pcie 4.0, this is ridiculous. AMD should jump at the chance to implement pcie 4.0 as soon as possible. If Intel does pcie 4.0 by end of 2018 it will look like AMD cannot keep up with Intel.

Now when AMD is trying to make a comeback perception is everything, AMD has to do cutting edge to show the world they are back in the game and can keep up with Intel.

And even so with Pcie 4.0 so delayed it would seem even weirder to drag it out a few years extra.

Maybe it is time to introduce a completely new standard and put PCIE out to pasture, one that is far more flexible, much lower latency and can be scaled up in speed without delays.
