HyperTransport is an open standard technology managed, promoted and licensed to the industry at large by the HyperTransport Consortium

HyperTransport’s market-proven solidity and highly efficient protocol make it the ideal choice as chip-to-chip, board-to-board and chassis-to-chassis high-performance interconnect, successfully deployed in the widest range of consumer, commercial and mission-critical applications, including gaming systems, embedded designs, networking equipment, personal computers, workstations, servers, and supercomputers.

HyperTransport Evolution and Milestones

Since its inception in 2001, the Consortium has pushed HyperTransport technology toward greater performance, features and architectural flexibility through new revisions of the HyperTransport link, the High Node Count specifications and a comprehensive portfolio of HT connector and cable standards. Below is a synthetic view of HyperTransport technology evolution.
