PCI Express (PCIe) is the latest interface specification designed to improve a system's graphic performance by increasing its bandwidth. It helps speed the communication flow between the CPU and the graphics controller. This enhancement allows texture maps of greater size, detail, and realism enabling 3D applications to run faster because of even higher bandwidth compared to AGP.
An Intel PC bus architecture that doubles the bandwidth of the AGP 8X bus, delivering over 4GB per second in both upstream and downstream data transfers. The graphics processing unit (GPU) has the largest bandwidth appetite of all PC subsystems, and from the start NVIDIA has been a key contributor to the PCI Express architecture, as a developer, a supporter, and as a provider of PCI Express graphics solutions.
First came PCI, then PCI-X, then PCI Express. PCI Express can be abbreviated ...
