PCI Express 5 vs. 4: What’s New?


What’s new about PCI Express 5 (PCIe 5)? The latest PCI Express standard, PCIe 5, represents a doubling of speed over the PCIe 4.0 specifications. We’re talking about 32 Gigatransfers per second (GT/s) vs. 16GT/s, with an aggregate x16 link bandwidth of almost 128 Gigabytes per second (GBps). This speed boost is needed to support a new generation of artificial intelligence (AI) and ma... » read more

Accelerating AI And ML Applications With PCIe 5


The rapid adoption of sophisticated artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) applications and the shift to cloud-based workloads has significantly increased network traffic in recent years. Historically, the intensive use of virtualization ensured that server compute capacity adequately met the need of heavy workloads. This was achieved by dividing or partitioning a single (physical) se... » read more
