    It's RDMA over Converged Ethernet. And has no use for the average user. IMO even above average user will just use infiniband, FC, FCoE, iSCSI, Ethernet or 10Gb/40Gb fiber and do his business without ever needing to deal with RoCE(learn something new).

      Those "branch prediction improvements" will be likely mitigated in a future...

        RoCE is very popular in the DC space, where servers go.

          Can you use the <abbr> element in the articles?
          RoCE → RDMA over Converged Ethernet
          RDMA → Remote DMA
          DMA → Direct Memory Access

            RoCE is very useful for large scale databases, and there are datastructures which are optimized for it. I suspect there is a market for it in China's networked services sector (particularly in search).

                The China Government is pushing the Made in China 2025 initiative which clearly aims to lock out US technology and it is working:

                “China’s government is aggressively working to undermine America’s high-tech industries and our economic leadership through unfair trade practices and industrial policies like Made in China 2025”—USTR Robert Lighthizer, June 15, 2018

                Unlike Qualcomm, Huawei will be in this game for a long time. China needs a server chip of its own. And they will ensure enough resources are dedicated to making it succeed.
