The new standard, called OpenCAPI provides an open, high-speed pathway for different types of technology – advanced memory, accelerators, networking and storage – to more tightly integrate their functions within servers. This data-centric approach to server design, which puts the compute power closer to the data, removes inefficiencies in traditional system architectures to help eliminate system bottlenecks and significantly improve server performance.

These specifications were contributed to the OpenCAPI Consortium pursuant of the IPR Policy as input specifications and will be reviewed and updated appropriately following the work group process.  

The OpenCAPI consortium looks forward to publishing draft specifications when this process completes.
