A consortium of technology companies headed by IBM and Google have teamed up to launch an open specification that is intended to speed up data centre server performance by up to ten times, reports Reuters. The new standard, called Open Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (OpenCAPI), will compete with the server technologies of Intel, which has decided to sit out of the consortium. The aim of the OpenCAPI interface is to provide a high bandwidth, low latency open interface design specification offering speeds of 25 Gbps compared to 16 Gbps under the current PCIe specification.
