Early adopters of AMD’s newest hardware can put their lanes to the test with 3DMark this summer. UL has announced that the popular benchmark is getting a PCIe 4.0 feature, which will help enthusiasts determine just how much additional bandwidth the interface offers.
The update will be free for 3DMark Advanced Edition owners and those who have a 3DMark Professional Edition license.
PCI Express (PCIe) is a standard interface that provides high-bandwidth communication between devices in a computer. New PCI Express 4.0 interfaces provide up to twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 3.0. With more bandwidth, games can transfer more data, reduce loading times, and support more complex scenes.
