CXL Consortium incorporates – Just ahead: high-speed, coherent interconnect for accelerators and memory based on PCIe 5.0
The Compute Express Link (CXL) Consortium announced its incorporation this month. The consortium’s founding members (Alibaba, Cisco, Dell EMC, Facebook, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Intel Corporation and Microsoft) jointly made the announcement. CXL is a new high-speed CPU-to-Device and CPU-to-Memory interconnect designed to accelerate next-generation data center performance. It’s is an open, industry-standard interconnect that offers high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity...
How do the new Intel Agilex FPGA family and the CXL coherent interconnect fabric intersect?
On April 2, Intel announced the new 10-nm family of Intel® Agilex™ FPGAs. (See “Intel Driving Data-Centric World with New 10nm Intel Agilex FPGA Family” for more information.) Among the many innovations included in the new Intel Agilex FPGA device family is inclusion of a high-bandwidth, low-latency Compute Express Link (CXL) coherent processor interface as a hard IP block....
