The Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (CAPI) on IBM POWER8 systems is a new means for solution architects to gain system-level performance. CAPI connects a custom acceleration engine to the coherent fabric of the POWER8 chip. The hybrid solution has a simple programming paradigm while delivering performance well beyond today’s I/O attached acceleration engines.
