A communications interface technology developed by Intel that directly connects the Memory Controller Hub (the chip that controls the memory) to the I/O controller hub (the network interface) to eliminate network traffic through the PCI bus. The interface allows for full-duplex data transmission at gigabit speeds. Also, memory read and write operations have lower latencies because data moves directly from the network interface to RAM.
