Data Center Evolution: Accelerating Computing with PCI Express 5.0

Data Center Evolution: Accelerating Computing with PCI Express 5.0

The PCI Express® (PCIe) interface is the critical backbone that moves data at high bandwidth between various compute nodes such as CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and workload-specific accelerators. The rise of cloud-based computing and hyperscale data centers, along with high-bandwidth applications like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), require the new level of performance of PCI Express 5.0.
