Processing Practice: CPU & System Architecture

CPU and System Architecture discipline covers all aspects of computing infrastructure solutions that process data, either centrally or part of a closely coupled system such as GPUs and SmartNICs.  This discipline looks are new hardware solutions, such as the emergence of ARM processing and solutions driven by technologies such as CXL (specifics of bus technologies are covered in the "Bus Technologies" sub-category).

Note: if you represent a vendor and feel your products/solutions should be included in our reports, please contact us at [email protected].


The CPU & System Architecture sub-category produces premium reports that review the current market landscape of vendor products and solutions. These include:

  • SmartNICs, DPUs and Computational Storage (BRKWP0303) - this new report was published in February 2023 and look at the market landscape of new hardware products introducing processing offload capabilities.
