Abstract: 

This presentation will outline the architectures for the top three platforms in each of these two categories, Von Neumann and Programmable Logic. Showing how vendors like NVIDIA, Pensando, Marvell, Achronix, Intel, and Xilinx have chosen to architect their solutions. We will then weigh the merits and benefits of each approach while also highlighting the performance bottlenecks. By the end of the presentation, it may be fairly clear where the industry is headed, and which solutions may eventually win out.

  • The difference between Von Neumann and Programmable Logic Architectures.
  • How each architecture addresses the challenges faced by heigh speed networks.
  • The flaws in each of the two architectural approaches.
  • The benefits of each architectural approach.
  • Where the market is heading, both in the short and longer term.
