Infiniband

Introduced: 2003-03-03

Description: One successor to PCI (merged from NGIO and Future I/O to System I/O) is using a "switched fabrics" architecture, including 1-wire (2.5Gb/s), 4-wire (10Gb/s) and 12-wire (30Gb/s) versions. 1- and 4-wire systems shows up first, with 12-wire systems expected in 2005. Intel and Microsoft has dropped their Infiniband support in favour of the simpler PCI Express (3GIO). Infiniband now mainly targeting inter-processor communications in high performance processor clusters.

Type: Communications [Roadmap] [Timeline]
