A new specification for the communications bus, used in AMD's multicore chips, should give it a speed boost
HyperTransport 3 which was once slated for AMD's Barcelona server processors seem to be delayed again on Shanghai until some time in 2009 when it finally arrives for the "Montreal" quad- and octal-core CPUs. According to page 21 of Mario Rivas' slides, the roadmap clearly indicates AMD's first 45nm processor Shanghai won't get the newer inter-processor interconnect and it will instead use the older HyperTransport 1 interconnects.
A leading AMD proponent rejects technology that could increase the importance of communication tech built into AMD chips.
Three emerging chip-to-chip interconnections: HyperTransport, PCI Express, and RapidIO are being increasingly integrated into semiconductors and systems, and shipments bearing these technologies will grow over the next several years, reports In-Stat. PCI Express will experience the highest growth of all three interconnects rising from 8.
[Editor's Note: In the interests of transparency, this is a full-text copy of my correspondence with Intel spokesperson Bill Kircos regarding a rumor that Intel might include a AMD HyperTransport-like chip in a future desktop or server offering. Excerpts from this e-mail are included in a blog entry about AMD's struggles to gain acceptance on the corporate desktop front.

Supercomputer maker Cray, plus six others, join the likes of AMD, IBM, Cisco and Apple to help spread the speedy technology.
Emboldened by a new partnership with blade maker Egenera, and by a wave of new AMD-based server offerings from HP, AMD has, at LinuxWorld, rolled out three new Opteron (formerly known as "Hammer") chips, a faster version of its HyperTransport interconnect technology, and enhanced SSE3 support. For the record, AMD proved me wrong.

A new version of the HyperTransport specification, which debuted Monday, is expected to boost performance in PCs and communications equipment over the next year.
The HyperTransport Consortium announced version 2.0 of the HyperTransport standard which is touted to speed PC-peripheral connections by 75 percent.
Big Blue, Texas Instruments, EMC and four others are joining the HyperTransport consortium, a move that will likely expand the places where the chip-to-chip connection gets used.
Apple Computer plans to discuss at an upcoming conference how it will use the high-speed chip-to-chip communications technology in its future desktops, sources say.
Transmeta's TM8000 chip will feature an entirely new architecture and will integrate Northbridge and HyperTransport connections to cut out the bottlenecks inside today's PCs,
Nvidia nForce2 chipsets bridge a PC's processor with key components such as memory and will connect with USB 2.0, the IEEE 1394a version of Firewire and HyperTransport.
Taiwan's Via Technologies will make chipsets for AMD's upcoming Hammer processors, an endorsement that will make it easier for PC manufacturers to obtain components. Via will release its first Hammer chipsets in late 2002, the same time the chip will begin to ship to manufacturers. Hammer chipsets differ from chipsets for other processors in that they're based on HyperTransport, a high-speed chip-to-chip connection technology. Chipsets connect the processor to hard drives and other peripherals. Via is one of the largest chipset manufacturers in the world. --Michael Kanellos, Special to ZDNet News
Hewlett-Packard has licensed API NetWorks' HyperTransport designs for high-speed connections between chips, API said Monday. The technology, originally created at Advanced Micro Devices, is intended to create bridges between system components such as CPUs and high-speed network subsystems.
More than a dozen companies have licensed the new standard for exchanging data between semiconductors

Texas Instruments signs up to AMD's HyperTransport, which enables data to move quickly between chips
Xilinx licenses communications chip design from API Networks in a deal that highlights the growing adoption of AMD-designed HyperTransport in the networking market.
A PCI industry group is expected to endorse Intel's Arapaho or 3GIO technology over AMD's HyperTransport as the 'input-output technology of the future.'
