Icrontic has an interesting read on AMD's Hyper Transport Technology. Pretty
good stuff, if you;re interested the link is here.
The twist to this lies in the hallways of manufacturers and vendors. Pulling
in the opposite direction will be those that make their living from producing
add-on products such as sound cards, video cards, wireless PCI devices and more.
These people want to sell you specialty products that are newer, better
and faster than what could come on-board the motherboard PCB and they
dont want you buying one either. They want you to upgrade, upgrade, upgrade.
Will those manufacturers ally themselves with motherboard makers such as ATI
and NVIDIA have done with on-board video?
