Samsung recently reported that it will continue to launch 128GB CXL DRAM that supports CXL 2.0. In order to accelerate next-generation storage Commercialization of solutions after the first CXL 1.1-based CXL DRAM (memory expander) in May 2022, this solution supports PCIe 5.0 (x8 lanes), providing up to 35GB per second of bandwidth.
CXL supports memory sharing and cache sharing
Well, CXL is actually made to support memory sharing and cache sharing and can be used in cloud computing, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, and other fields. CXL is a technology jointly developed by Intel, AMD, and other companies.
CXL 2.0 is Samsung’s first product to support pooling
Samsung Electronics plans to start mass production of CXL 2.0 DRAM. Before the end of this year and is preparing to launch products with various densities. This time Samsung made the CXL 2.0 as its first product to support pooling.
Binding multiple CXL memory blocks on the server platform together to form a memory pool, enabling multiple hosts to dynamically allocate memory from the pool as needed, memory pool is a memory management technique.
