Apple plans to discuss how it will incorporate HyperTransport, a rapid chip-to-chip communications technology, into future Macs at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) later this month, according to c|net. “The Cupertino, Calif.-based company will use HyperTransport as a high-speed link between the two processors that make up the chipset in new desktop Macintoshes, sources said. A chipset is a group of chips that manages the internal functions of a computer… HyperTransport 1.0 features an aggregate data transfer rate of 6.4 gigabytes to 12.8 gigabytes, depending on the configuration. This is faster than most existing chip connection technologies, a change that in turn should lead to overall better performance.”
