IBM has introduced Version 3 of its PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor family, called the PCIeCC3 on IBM Z® mainframes (z14® only), as crypto feature Crypto Express6S (CEX6S), feature code (FC) 0893.
The CEX6S provides over 2x performance in most cryptographic algorithms over the CEX5S. The following charts show the examples of operations per second for the IBM CEX6S, CEX5S, and CEX4S for various modes and cryptographic algorithms. All of these examples are on IBM Z systems. Full performance graphs for the IBM CEX6S are in IBM CEX6S Performance Data, Linux on Z (625 KB) and full performance results are available in IBM z14 Performance of Cryptographic Operations (275 KB).
