OpenCAPI Consortium: Strategies for CXL’s success in a world of proprietary Coherent Busses
2021-10-28, 09:20–09:35, RoomA

As the excitement around the promise of CXL builds, industry incumbents have continued to rapidly innovate with their own proprietary coherent interconnect busses.
These developments only serve to confuse what our Industry Standard future landscape will look like.
This presentation will showcase a potential path for CXL to flourish by existing alongside these proprietary busses without the processor companies having to sacrifice their proprietary solutions.

The presentation will conclude that the integration of CXL with an Industry Standard Near Memory bus will drive CXLs rapid organic growth in a shared memory centric world.
