Nvidia and IBM unveil NVLink interconnect between CPUs and GPUs coming in 2016 with 5x-12x faster data sharing

Nvidia and IBM today announced a high-speed interconnect called NVLink. The new technology will be integrated into Nvidia’s future GPUs, starting with its Pascal GPU architecture expected to be introduced in 2016, as well as IBM’s future versions of its Power CPUs. The companies claim NVLink enables GPUs and CPUs to share data five to 12 times faster than they can today, eliminating what they say is “a longstanding bottleneck.” The duo believes the innovation will help pave the way for a new generation of exascale supercomputers that are 50 to 100 times faster than today’s most powerful systems. Both...
