HyperTransport

HyperTransport technology is a high-speed, low-latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies. HyperTransport technology is usually integrated directly into the processor, but in some cases HyperTransport is used as an integrated, high performance I/O bus that pipes PCI, PCI-X, USB, Firewire and audio/video links through the system.

HyperTransport technology was invented at AMD with contributions from industry partners and is managed and licensed by the HyperTransport Technology Consortium.
