Rambus is still around? I guess some prayers never get answered... His Noodly Holiness is probably busy with other things and can't honor every single prayer for CEO ass-cancer.
Are they still a bunch of dicks?
While PCIe 5.0 continues to gain traction, Rambus has made available a PCIe 6.0 Interface Subsystem for incorporation in third-party hardware. It comprises PHY and controller blocks, with the PHY also supporting the latest CXL 3.0 specifications. The PCIe 6.0 specifications were released by the PCI-SIG consortium early this …
In what form does this PCIe 6.0 Interface Subsystem come? Any PHY with fast SERDES is basically analogue design and very deeply process-specific at the moment, it would be nice to know what processes the blocks are available for.
(the press release at Rambus just says 'on advanced process nodes', it would be an interesting insight into the fabrication industry to know whether that includes Intel Integrated Foundry Services and Samsung's offerings, or just means TSMC N5 and N3)
