Gigabyte has also involved the next-gen PCIe Gen5 connectors, becoming the new standard for PSUs and involving the most recent graphics cards. This is going to be the first PCIe Gen5 compatible power supply designed by Gigabyte.

PCIe 5.0 is the next-gen power supply standard and is in accordance with the prior generation’s PCIe 4.0 standard. The bandwidth and transfer rates are double as compared to that of the PCIe 4.0, making data transmission remarkably speedier. PCIe 5.0 offers 32 GT/s and transfer rates of up to 3.94 GB/s. The specification is officially called the “12VHPWR” specification.

The new PCIe standard has raised confusion in the manufacturer’s market because they do not understand how it should be documented.
Gigabyte as a manufacturer, is confusing the users. For example, the new UD1000GM PG5 uses up to 4 varied terms for the next-gen cable and connector which are as follows:

•PCIe Gen5 cable
•12+4-pin cable
•16-pin cable
