ConnectX-5 enables higher HPC performance with its Message Passing Interface (MPI) offloads, such as MPI Tag Matching and MPI AlltoAll operations, advanced dynamic routing, and great capabilities to perform various data algorithms. Moreover, ConnectX-5 Accelerated Switching and Packet Processing (ASAP2) technology enhances offloading of virtual switches, for example, Open V-Switch (OVS), which results in significantly higher data transfer performance without overloading the CPU.
