Why Propose a New Bus?
Explosive Growth of Data
• System memory is flat or shrinking
• Memory bandwidth per core continues to decrease
• Memory capacity per core is generally flat
• Memory is changing on a different cadence compared to
the CPU

• Data is growing
• More than 37% of total data generated in
2020 (40 ZB) will have Big Data value
• Data that requires real-time analysis is growing
exponentially
• The value of the analysis decreases if it takes too long to
provide insights
Need Answers … FAST!
• The industry needs an open architecture to solve the
problems

Value of Analyzed Data
$
• Memory tiers will become increasingly important
• Rack-scale composability requires a high bandwidth, low
latency fabric
• Must seamlessly plug into existing ecosystems without
requiring OS changes

Memory-Semantic Fabric
• Communication at the speed of Memory
What is a Memory Semantic Fabric?
• Handles all communication as memory operations
such as load/store, put/get and atomic operations
typically used by a processor

Memory
• Memory semantics are optimal at sub-microsecond
latencies from CPU load command to register store
• Unlike, storage accesses which are block based and
managed by complex, code intensive, software stacks
Memory Semantics
Why Now?
• The emergence of low latency, Storage Class
Memory (SCM) and the demand for large capacity,
rack scale resource pools, and multi node
architectures

Gen-Z Consortium
Mission
• Create a next generation interconnect that will bridge
existing solutions while enabling new unbounded
innovation
• Develop in an open, non-proprietary standards body
where adoption, differentiation and innovation is
promoted as an industry standard.
Board Members
A Transparent Organization: Gen-Z has been formed as a not-for-profit organization, its ongoing development
occurs on the basis of an open decision-making procedure available to all interested parties.
Wide availability: The Gen-Z standard will be published and available free of charge.
End-User Choice: There are no constraints on the re-use of the standard. Gen-Z creates a fair, competitive
market for implementations of the standard.
Equality: Gen-Z does not favor one implementer over another.
