Are there any papers on the subject. I'm very surprised to not find any papers on PCI-Gen4. Only news releases.

"The first two versions of PCIe used 8b/10b encoding, and thus had lower processing overhead." "Version 4.0 will use the same 128b/130b encoding..." I was under the impression that going to 128b/130b was a rather significant reduction in overhead compared to 8b/10b or is this referring to the scrambling/descrambling that is applied to the data? After all the 2 bits in an 8b/10b encoding is 20% while 128b/130b is 1.5%.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
