NGIO - Computer Definition
(Next Generation Input Output) An input/output architecture developed by Intel that evolved into InfiniBand. NGIO was expected to replace the PCI bus with a switching matrix, providing a 2.5 Gbps data path between each pair of nodes. In 2000, NGIO and Future I/O merged into one technology, originally called "System I/O" and later "InfiniBand." See InfiniBand.
