PCI-SIG announced the availability of the PCI Express Base 2.0 specification on 15 January 2007.[17] The PCIe 2.0 standard doubles the transfer rate compared with PCIe 1.0 to 5 GT/s and the per-lane throughput rises from 250 MB/s to 500 MB/s. This means a 32-lane PCIe connector (32) can support throughput up to 16 GB/s aggregate.
