IBM hops on HyperTransport bus

IBM is one of a number of new additions to the HyperTransport consortium, which should come as no surprise to anyone that's been following the PowerPC 970. IBM's new 64-bit desktop chip—soon to be available in Apple's new Power Macs as the G5—reportedly uses HyperTransport links.

IBM joins AMD, NVIDIA, VIA, and others as a part of the consortium, but IBM's "adaptor" membership prohibits the company from influencing future revisions of the specification.
