Dell Corp. has joined the HyperTransport Technology Consortium, a nonprofit organization that develops, promotes and licenses HyperTransport technology, which is touted to be the industry's lowest latency, highest bandwidth chip-to-chip interconnect solution. As a high-level member, Dell will leverage the consortium's technology in several of its server and desktop product lines.

HyperTransport technology is a CPU-native interconnect standard that delivers efficient high throughput with minimum latency between multiple devices including chassis, motherboards and chips. The technology supports high-performance appliances, embedded systems, networking systems, PCs, workstations, gaming systems, servers and supercomputers. At present, the consortium released the third version of the technology's specification.

"By incorporating HyperTransport technology in our server and desktop products, we continue to deliver innovative systems that meet customers' requirements for high performance and scalable configurations," said Dell CTO Kevin Kettler.

"Dell's investment in HyperTransport technology validates the growing appeal of our interconnect standard to mainstream enterprise computing environments," said David Rich, president, HyperTransport Consortium. "Dell has the market latitude to further globalize the reach of HyperTransport technology by delivering the lowest latency, highest bandwidth and most future-ready system interconnect to data centers and to individual users."
