Gen-Z is an open-systems interconnect designed to provide memory-semantic access to data and devices via direct-attached, switched or fabric topologies.
The Gen-Z Consortium is made up of leading computer industry companies dedicated to creating and commercializing a new data access technology. The consortium’s 12 initial members are AMD, ARM, Broadcom, Cray, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, IDT, Micron, Samsung, SK hynix, and Xilinx. View our full member list.
Gen-Z was developed to enhance existing and enable new solution architectures while delivering new levels of performance (high-bandwidth, low-latency), software efficiency, power optimizations, and industry agility. Gen-Z technologies can be transparently inserted into any solution with no operating system or middleware software changes required.
The Gen-Z Consortium strongly believes in developing an open ecosystem where members, the broader industry, and customers can work together to deliver robust, high-quality specifications that meet industry needs. Periodically, the Gen-Z Consortium will publicly post draft specifications and technical concepts to elicit input from the broader industry and customers.
