SK Hynix Unveils CXL Memory Module with Compute Capabilities

Posted on

SK Hynix has introduced one of the industry’s first computational memory solutions (CMS) — a 512GB memory expansion module with compute capabilities and a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface with the CXL protocol on top. 

Aimed at big data analytics applications, the device is said to increase performance by several times when compared to CPUs in specific computations.

SK Hynix’s CMS carries four 128GB conventional DDR memory modules and is equipped with a system-on-chip (or maybe a set of chips) that can handle machine learning KNN (k-nearest neighbors) classification algorithm acceleration, data filtering, and load balancing that features a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface which supports both CXL.mem and protocols. The CMS card also has two network connectors to connect to other nodes.

We’re not sure about the card’s power consumption, but it has an eight-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector that can deliver up to 150W of power.
