Nice article, David.

«The high voltage I/O transistors are even larger and are formed with a gate oxide that is 4-7X thicker to deal with the higher voltages in the 1.8-3.3V range. This is a substantial improvement over the 45nm process, which did not have 3.3V transistors, as PCI-Express and other interconnects use 3.3V signaling.»

PCIe is LVDS, thus 2.5V suffice.
Maybe you were thinking of PCI-X?
