So far PCIe 5 seems to have pushed up prices of motherboards without providing many benefits. We see GPU's not being in a hurry to go even to 5 and they don't seem to need it either. And PCIe 5 NVMe's are so hot that they cause cooling issues. Will PCIe 6 even provide any benefits to regular consumers?

I wonder if these rapid new version releases without much/any benefit aren't going to result in the consumer market staying on older PCIe versions.
