Adaptec supports the advancement of PCI-X technology as it extends server performance and adds value for our customers while providing investment-protecting backward compatibility," said Mark Delsman, chief technology officer at Adaptec.
The phenomenal success of PCI and PCI-X is also based on this model, and we are excited about these new performance extension developments.
Intel supports the efforts of the PCI-SIG to continue to improve today's PCI-X
specification with PCI-X
Servers will be the first computing system to adopt PCI-X because I/O is critical to server and server appliance applications," said Kimball Brown, vice president of business development for ServerWorks.
Several companies are already integrating PCI-X into commercial products, including servers.
The evolutionary upgrade built into PCI-X will allow our customers to protect their investment in existing PCI based platforms, while enjoying the performance boost offered by the new PCI-X technology," said Richard O'Connor, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Tundra.
PCI-X is an innovative and evolutionary I/O technology that increases system performance through greater I/O performance and efficiency.
The 64-bit PCI-X
bus operates at speeds up to 133 MHz, providing burst transfer rates above 1 gigabyte per second, eight times the rate of the most common PCI implementations today.
