I seem to remember reading before that PCIe 4 was going to be very short lived. So 2021 may not be all that unexpected. Now, it will be Data Center first i am sure. Given that Genoa is coming out in 2021 with a new socket (Read DDR5) I can see them going Gen5 as well.

200 GbE already requires 16 lane Gen 4 cards and 400 Gbit is a thing as well which will need 5. Not to mention the push to massive flash arrays.
