PCI and the PCI SIG have again done outstanding work. PCI continues to innovate, Congrats... long ago (1990). I fondly remember debating 5V or 3.3V as the first spec. (PCI 1.0), We have come a long way and revolutionized a industry.

Indeed, pretty good collaboration for a hotly competitive industry. It will be interesting to see how this group faces the transition to optical circa 2020. Hope I am there to write about that one!

I still think that for mobile devices multiplexing DisplayPort, or some video signal, in parallel with PCIe (as Thunderbolt does) makes more sense than PCIe only. With only PCIe, a GPU will be required at the monitor end.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
