Optimize I/O expansion in workstations

Posted: 17 Dec 2007 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:PCIe? I/O expansion? high performance workstation?

High-end workstations are constantly being pushed for increased performancefrom gaming applications to modeling and simulating complex electronic and mechanical systems. It is crucial to get every bit of performance available from today's workstations. A number of pitfalls are often encountered as bridges and switches are added to increase the connectivity. These include increased latency, processor overloading, reduced bandwidth and diminished overall system performance.

PCIe switches and PCI-to-PCIe bridges can help get beyond many of the workstation I/O limitations mentioned. Steve Moore of PLX Technology invites us to explore how these devices can be used to optimize I/O expansion in high-performance workstations.
