Insightful article about Intels Common System Interface
An insightful article about the upcoming successor to the FSB: The Common System Interface: Intel’s Future Interconnect. But after several pages good information, the article gets a bad smack:
Montvale, which will be released at the end of 2007, uses a 667MHz bus that is 128 bits wide – a total of 10.6GB/s of bandwidth. This pales in comparison to the 300GB/s that a single POWER6 processor can tap into.
As BMseer write in his/her/their blog the 300 GB/s claim is absolutly meaningless.
