There are another dozen communications processors that link to the HyperTransport
buses on the Opterons to provide a high-speed link to the switching fabric that connects all of the shelves in a massively parallel machine to each other.
-- Dual AMD Opteron Processor 200 Series - CPU Built-in 1MB L2 cache -- Three HyperTransport
links providing up to 19.2 GB/s peak bandwidth per processor -- 128-bit Dual Channel Memory Controller - Integrated in CPU -- Simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing capability
In addition, AMD HyperTransport
3.0 technology (HT3) increases interconnect rates from 2 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) up to a maximum 4.8GT/s.

The buses and protocols addressed include CAN, SPI, RS-232, SATA, SAS, PCIe, FibreChannel, Serial Rapid 10, and HyperTransport
These needs are driving the adoption of new processor interconnect standards such as Intel's common system interface (CSI) and AMD's HyperTransport
. In the future, it makes sense to avoid that bus.
Featuring a 16-lane PCI Express slot, a stackable HyperTransport
technology connector, ExpressCard socket, 4x SATA, CompactFlash socket, and Gigabit Ethernet, MB-06047 is available with 64-bit Debian Linux or Windows XP Professional x64.
InfiniPath is the industry's lowest latency Linux cluster interconnect, delivering SMP-class performance to commodity-priced Linux clusters while leveraging important standards such as HyperTransport
technology, InfiniBand, MPICH and AMD64 Direct Connect Architecture.
Several popular bus standards, including HyperTransport
, RapidlO, and PCI Express, have evolved to support switch-based interconnects.
With this exceptional flexibility, the Hydra core supports a number of standards and data rates including, but not limited to Gigabit Ethernet, SGMII, XAUI, CX-4, Serial RIO, Parallel RIO, SFI4.1, SPI4.2, SPI5, and HyperTransport
. The unique in-system selectable LVDS and PCML I/Os allow the design of single ports that support both LVDS-based and PCML-based interfaces such as SPI4.2 (LVDS) and XAUI (PCML).
