Invited Talk

CXL Shared Memory with Near Memory Compute for Graph Analytics

Tony Brewer

The presentation will provide a brief introduction to the CXL standard and its support for globally shared fabric attached memory. Once the CXL introduction is provided, the presentation will provide a description of the CXL prototype system that Micron and PNNL are constructing that allows early access to CXL based globally shared fabric attached memory for application porting and performance analysis. Finally, the presentation will provide simulated performance expectations for the graph 500 benchmark when ported to the prototype system.
