    Hmm, so Nvidia win out in the bidding war for the big company specialising in high speed interconnects and Intel suddenly "announces" this with no specs or information. Granted it would have taken a while to get the companies on board but I bet this was their plan B and they'd have ditched the whole thing if they'd have won the bidding war.

    This is "please don't abandon us, look we can do it, too!" marketing. Maybe they're hoping Nvidia will join up and so they can get access to some of those juicy patents they missed out on.

    Business is business. No matter the intention, it is good that they are countering their loss making their technology open. If AMD joins them it can create significant threat for nVidia.
    NVidia is known from implementing their own s*** and making it necessary but with this as a counter, having 2 big players against... let's see what happen.

    Re: Intel announces CXL, a milestone in moving data

    The CXL consortium partner names mentioned above are impressive but PC enthusiasts will have probably noticed that AMD and Nvidia are absent from the partner list, at this time.
    Not just those two (although noteworthy), what about IBM or Qualcomm, ARM etc?

    PCIe 4.0 also seems a touch late to the party, considering PCIe 5.0 effectively doubles the bandwidth available, seems more like Intel is pushing this spec more to put it at an advantage when they release discrete graphics cards....
