Intel is expected to disclose details about a new and integrated “I/O acceleration technology” for servers during IDF from March 1-3. Intel I/O Acceleration Technology is a hard-based solution that is said to improve the interaction between servers and networking systems by up to 30 percent. The technology is not a standalone or peripheral chip. Instead, the technology consists of “new transistors,” which are integrated and incorporated within the microprocessor, chip set, and network controller lines. Intel is expected to integrate the I/O acceleration technology within its Xeon line of 32- and 64-bit chips. With Intel I/O Acceleration Technology, the protocol stacks are optimized in a processor, data-copying is supported in a chip set and parallel processing and direct-memory access are handled in networking controller.
