[Tom's Hardware] AMD Teams Up With Intel in CXL Interconnect Consortium

Source: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/am...ium,39981.html

In a blog post, Mark Papermaster, CTO and EVP of technology and engineering at AMD, said: “As a long-standing supporter of open standards, we’re excited to join CXL and the possibilities presented as we work with other ecosystem leaders to address challenges we face as an industry.”

With the addition of AMD, the CXL site now shows 55 public members of the consortium. Some of the most notable ones besides AMD include Alibaba, Broadcom, Cisco, Dell EMC, Facebook, Google, Mellanox (acquired by Nvidia), Microsoft, Western Digital and SK Hynix. Most surprising, perhaps, is the membership of Arm, which has its own CCIX interconnect.

Since CXL uses the PCIE 5.0 physical link then it is a good bet it will becomes the defacto standard of all next gen compute interconnect links. Especially since it is already seeing adoption on Intel's FPGA platform. CCIX is still using PCIE4 links so it is "behind the times". While it may seem like a simple "lets just upgrade it to 5.0 spec" type thing, the hardware layer is very similar between the standards, 5.0 is mostly just a drastic change in signal encoding. So CCIX would have to undergo this major signalling change in order to jump up to the higher standard while CXL is already there.
