SK Hynix Unveils CXL Memory Module with Compute Capabilities

SK hynix is introduced One of the industry’s first Computational Memory Solutions (CMS), it features a 512GB memory expansion module with computing capabilities and a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface with CXL protocol.

Aimed at big data analytics applications, the device is said to deliver several times better performance compared to CPUs for certain calculations.

SK Hynix’s CMS is a system-on-chip (or set of chips) with four 128GB conventional DDR memory modules and capable of accelerating machine learning KNN (k-nearest neighbor) classification algorithms, data filtering, and load balancing. ). It has a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface that supports both CXL.mem and CXL.io protocols. The CMS card also has two network connectors for connecting to other nodes.
