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%.

What do you see on the horizon for pc boards with optical interconnects?
