TAG Supports Latest Series Of Intel Xeon Processors And PCIe4 Architectures

TAG Video Systems has announced support for the latest series of Intel Xeon processors and PCIe4 architectures as part of its ongoing platform enhancement initiative. This enhancement underscores the Company’s dedication to providing users access to the most recent technology advancements and the highest level of value for their monitoring, probing and visualization needs.

Intel’s PCIe4 (PCI Express 4.0) hardware is the latest version of PC motherboard expansion card interface. With availability of PCIe4 computer systems, the interconnect bandwidth is doubled compared to the PCIe3 version and provides up to 32 GB/s of bidirectional data per card slot. With TAG’s support for COTS servers and cloud instances that support PCIe4, TAG is now effectively able to double the amount of uncompressed signals that can be processed.

To support PCIe4, TAG has qualified the latest Intel Xeon 6300 processors enabling the use of servers with PCIe4 motherboards. TAG has also qualified the latest Dell R650 and R750 servers with these Xeon CPUs, enabling up to eight 100Gb/s network interfaces per server. Coupled with PCIe4 bus speeds, these systems double the ability of TAG to support up to 128 uncompressed HD input signals per server.

Kevin Joyce, Zer0 Friction Officer, TAG says “The support for PCIe4, the latest Xeon CPUs and Dell servers exemplifies value to our customers in supporting COTS hardware. With our rapid qualification of these technologies, our customers are able to leverage the latest in advancements in IT technology, creating more powerful systems at lower costs.”

As always, in keeping with TAG’s Zer0-Friction paradigm, all current TAG customers upgrading to the latest version of TAG software can enable the latest features including PCIe4-based servers and the latest supported Intel Xeon CPUs at no additional cost or changes to their licenses.
