    Why couldn't this years card released be built on PCIe5? by the looks of the chart PCIe5 was ready in 2019 so plenty of time for AMD and nVidia to become future ready.

    1) No consumer boards with PCIe5.
    2) Barely any change of PCIe4 over 3.0 since PCIe 4 has a lot more bandwidth than current cards can really make use of
    3) Possibly cost

    It more an on paper spec framework than a hardware release don't expect to see anytime before 2024 lol

    This is a specification release rather than a product release. Only at the point of manufacturers receiving a final specification will they typically invest the R&D into designing then releasing a technology which will be years away. Generally speaking manufacturers prefer previous technologies to have matured, and PCIe 4 hasn't reached that stage yet, there's still a surplus of 3.0 in the wild.
    With PCIe 5/6 so close, however, it would make sense in my eyes to bypass 5 altogether.

    And lets face it, GPU's don't take much advantage on what's on offer with PCIe as benchmarks have shown time & time again the little gains of FPS between PCIe revisions.

    The latest PCIe standards are clearly aimed at the storage markets now more & more devices are preferring to bypass SATA's bottlenecks
