HyperTransport Consortium Conducts In-Depth Tutorial on HyperTransport Interconnect Technology at Hot Chips 21

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2009) -

What:   A morning tutorial on system interconnects during Hot Chips 21.
        The HyperTransport Consortium will educate attendees on the latest
        features offered by the industry's highest performance, lowest
        latency interconnect technology, HyperTransport 3.  In addition to
        covering bandwidth and reliability enhancements, the Consortium
        will discuss the new HyperTransport High Node Count (HNC)
        specification, which has been developed to address the need for
        highly scalable, resource-efficient, energy-efficient, and
        cost-optimized computing platforms.  Attendees will learn how this
        new specification will transform the data center, cloud computing
        and high-performance computing applications.

Who:    José Duato, professor of computer science of the Polytechnic
        University of Valencia, Spain, will present on behalf of the
        HyperTransport Consortium.

When:   Sunday, August 23, 2009, 9:30 a.m.

Where:  The Hot Chips 21 conference takes place August 23 - August 25,
