While graphics processing units and accelerators grab most of the attention in the AI market, networking and related gear are critical for the efficient operation of data centers.

Broadcom announced the availability of the world’s first 5-nanometer PCI Express Gen5/Gen6 retimers optimized for AI workloads. Retimers are chips that boost signals when transmitting data between computers in data centers.

“As the demands on AI servers continue to increase, cloud and enterprise data center providers require higher bandwidth, lower latency, lower power, and an open standard-based fabric to interconnect compute, accelerators, networking and storage devices,” Broadcom said in a news release.
