SAN JOSE, Calif. — Seven chip makers will define a cache-coherent interconnect for server accelerators, providing an alternative to Intel and Nvidia in a red hot sector of cloud computing. The effort is the first hardware collaboration of its type to span ARM, x86 and Power processors. Advanced Micro Devices, ARM, Huawei, IBM, Mellanox, Qualcomm and Xilinx will define the Cache Coherent Interconnect for Accelerators (CCIX, pronounced C6). The group will release a draft specification by the end of the year, but has so far not released any technical or financial details. The effort started after Intel bid $16.7 billion to buy Altera last year , in part to use its FPGAs as accelerators for its Xeon server CPUs.
