Some Intel Alder Lake CPUs might not support PCIe 5.0 after all

Advanced, next-gen support for the new PCIe 5.0 standard is one of the major selling points of the new Intel Alder Lake processors, but a new photo from an Alder Lake reviewer indicates that not all Alder Lake chips will support the faster standard.

The photo comes from Videocardz, who got it from an Alder Lake reviewer who also received an Asus Z690 motherboard to test the processor with. It appears to have been shipped in a box for an as-yet-unreleased Intel B660 motherboard though, and the info on the box shows it only supporting the current-gen PCIe 4.0 standard.

The peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe) standards effectively represents the speed with which certain components plugged into the motherboard communicate with the processor.
