Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) November 4, 2005
The HyperTransport Consortium will present a live webcast discussing “High Performance Computing with HyperTransport.” The High Performance Computing (HPC) market is one of the market sectors that fully reaps the benefits of Hyper-Transport technology – a well established, widely adopted, high-performance, scalable interconnect standard.
HyperTransport technology is particularly well suited to serve the HPC market by virtue of its low latency, high bandwidth and direct processor integration, such as in the case of AMD's Opteron™ – a latest generation multi-core processor family widely used in massive multi-processing (MMP) supercomputers and scalable system clusters. Coupled with the HyperTransport Consortium’s HTX connectivity standard, HyperTransport processor-to-processor and processor-to-I/O technology is leading the industry into new realms of highest computing performance at commodity-level cost by leveraging off-the-shelf components.
The online broadcast will cover:
- The High Performance Computing Challenge
- The industry’s answer
- HPC up close
- HPC market leaders bank on HyperTransport technology
- HyperTransport-based HPC products
- Expanding role of HyperTransport technology in the HPC market
Presenters for the November 8th broadcast will be:
- Harry Hirschman, chair person of the HyperTransport Consortium Marketing Working Group and director of product marketing for PathScale, Inc.
- Mario Cavalli, general manager of the HyperTransport Consortium
The HyperTransport™ Technology Consortium is a non-profit industry organization that manages and promotes low-latency HyperTransport technology.
The live webcast will take place on Tuesday, November 8, at 11 a.m. pacific time. Afterwards, it will be available on demand from the TechOnLine and HyperTransport Consortium archives.
