• Type 1 CXL devices are caching devices such as Accelerators and SmartNICs. The Type 1 device can access the host memory through CXL.cache transactions and maintain a local cache that is coherent with the host memory. • Type 2 CXL devices are GPUs and FPGAs that have memories like DDR and HBM attached to the device. CXL Type 2 devices can directly access the host-attached memory as do CXL Type 1 devices. Additionally, CXL Type 2 devices have local address space that is visible and accessible to the host CPU through CXL.mem transactions. • Type 3 CXL devices are memory expansion devices that allow host processors to access CXL device memory cache coherently through cxl.mem transactions. CXL Type 3 devices could be used for memory density and memory bandwidth expansion.For the purpose of this article, we’ll focus on Type 3 CXL devices. CXL Features and Benefits
