Join Us: “Compute Express Link™ (CXL): Exploring Coherent Memory and Innovative Use Cases” Webinar
March 12, 2020 from 8 AM - 9 AM PT
By Scott Knowlton
Register now for our next educational webinar on CXL technologies, “Compute Express Link™ (CXL): Exploring Coherent Memory and Innovative Use Cases.” CXL is the new high-speed CPU-to-Device and CPU-to-Memory interconnect that accelerates next-generation data center performance.
“Exploring Coherent Memory and Innovative Use Cases” Webinar Details:
CXL technology maintains a unified, coherent memory space between the CPU (host processor) and CXL devices allowing the device to expose its memory as coherent in the platform and allowing the device to directly cache coherent memory. This allows both the CPU and device to share resources for higher performance and reduced software stack complexity. In CXL, the CPU host is primarily responsible for coherency management abstracting peer device caches and CPU caches. The resulting simplified coherence model reduces the device cost, complexity and overhead traditionally associated with coherency across an I/O link.
In this Webinar, we will explore:
How CXL technology maintains memory coherency between the CPU memory space and memory on attached devices
The methods by which CXL views memory components, namely processors, caching agents and systems
About CXL use cases, namely: Caching Devices/Accelerators, Accelerators with Memory, and Memory Buffers
How the CXL Consortium operates and how to get involved. Our Working Groups are advancing exciting new technologies and now is a great time to join this fast growing consortium!
