AMD Working to Bring CXL Memory Tech to Future Consumer CPUs

AMD officials revealed something unexpected during the company’s Meet the Experts webinar today. This puts persistent memory devices such as SSDs on the memory bus for better performance. By putting remote memory devices into the same pool as system DRAM, CXL provides improved performance, lower latency, and memory expansion capabilities. Think he can expand memory by plugging an SSD or better memory into any device that plugs into a PCIe or m.2 port.

Unlike Optane, which was discontinued by Intel due to poor adoption, CXL already enjoys broad industry support through its open protocol. In fact, AMD and Intel, along with many other companies, are working on the new specification.
