PCIe replacing Ethernet? Infiniband getting squeezed
patrick.mannion   6/30/2013 6:40:02 PM
PCI Express is getting quite a lot of traction, so it'll be interesting to see how it does with PLX's adapter-card approach. It's got the speed and low power. Infiniband may feel the squeeze. Interesting progress by PLX: Thanks for the  update Rick.
