November 10, 2021 — High performance computing continues to evolve—meeting the ever-increasing demand for high efficiency, low-latency, rapid and seamless processing. The Gen‑Z Consortium was founded in 2016 to create a next-generation fabric capable of bridging existing solutions while enabling new, unbounded innovation in an open, non-proprietary standards body.
In 2019, the CXL™ Consortium launched to deliver Compute Express Link™ (CXL™), an industry-supported cache-coherent interconnect designed for processors, memory expansion, and accelerators. The CXL Consortium and the Gen‑Z Consortium established a joint memorandum of understanding (MOU) providing an opportunity for collaboration to define bridging between the protocols. This took the form of a joint working group that encouraged creativity and innovation between the two organizations toward the betterment of the industry as a whole.
Looking to the future, the CXL Consortium and Gen‑Z Consortium have identified synergies between the two consortia that resulted in the signing of a Letter of Intent which, if passed and agreed upon by all parties, would transfer the Gen‑Z Specifications and all Gen‑Z assets to the CXL Consortium.
