Memory Wall 3
Breaking Through the Memory Wall

The term “memory wall” was first coined in 1994 to define what was becoming an obvious problem at the time: processor performance was outpacing memory interconnect bandwidth. In other words, memory access was limiting compute performance. Almost 30 years later this statement still holds true, especially in memory-intensive applications such as artificial intelligence (AI) where… Read More »

Astera Labs Delivers Industry-First CXL Interop with DDR5-5600 Memory Modules

Earlier this year, we announced the launch of our Cloud-Scale Interop Lab for CXL to provide robust interoperability testing between our Leo Memory Connectivity Platform and a growing ecosystem of CXL supported CPUs, memory modules and operating systems. By providing this critical testing, we enable customers to deploy CXL-attached memory with confidence by minimizing interoperational… Read More »
