About new PCIe 4.0 motherboards

When will we see the first PCIe 4.0 motherboards and should I wait for these if I'm going to get two-way SLI GTX 1080's?

Two PCI 3.0 x8 slots wouldn't bottleneck two 1080's, would they?

    No, no bottlenecking whatsoever. Far from it. As for PCIE 4.0, you'd be in for a really long and pointless wait :)
  3. ~2019 is a long wait. Coincidentally there was a new article about it today.
