WEBINAR – CXL: a promising solution to data center memory bottlenecks?Register now
CXL is reshaping the landscape of memory innovation
Join Yole Group and Rambus for an exciting online event that’s set to spark in excitement in the semiconductor industry!
Without doubt, CXL has the potential to revolutionize memory utilization, management, and access in terms of disaggregation and composability. This paradigm change, which already occurred in the 90s for storage, gives birth to a new industry focused on CXL memory fabric software, systems, and services.
At Yole Group, analysts announce a US$14 million CXL market by 2023, with primarily prototypes only.
This figure should reach about US$16 billion by 2028.
With this cutting-edge innovation, we’re thrilled to extend this exclusive invitation to all professionals and enthusiasts in the semiconductor field.
For one hour, we invite you to discover the status of CXL technology and its underlying ecosystem and related business opportunities. This program welcomes Rambus, a leading CXL memory company, to deliver its vision of the industry and highlight CXL technology’s assets.
Our webcast promises to unveil leading-edge insights and discuss emerging market and technology trends. This event by Yole Group provides a dedicated opportunity for networking with industry memory experts.
Today, CXL is in its very early stages of deployment, with the first server CPUs supporting the CXL 1.1 interface – Intel’s Sapphire Rapids and AMD’s Genoa – entering mass production in early 2023.
A significant rise in the market will be seen once the first CXL 2.0 CPUs enter the market. Expected in the second half of 2024, they will enable the implementation of memory pools shared by many servers in the same rack. The ramp-up will be further reinforced with the availability of CXL 3.0 CPUs in late 2025. They are expected to enable memory pooling between racks as well as full disaggregation and composability of accelerators (GPUs, DPUs, FPGAs…) and storage technologies using PCIe.
