Writing for CNET , Michael Kanellos posits that details about the Mac platform's future use of HyperTransport may factor into Apple's plans for this months's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

HyperTransport is a chip connection technology that enables computer chips to exchange data faster than many other technologies now used. Kanellos cites unnamed sources as claiming that Apple plans to use HyperTransport in upcoming Mac models. Apple declined to comment for Kanellos' article. Kanellos admitted that Apple's product strategy "is often difficult to predict with complete accuracy."

Earlier this month, the HyperTransport Consortium -- of which Apple is a founding member -- announced the availability of the first HyperTransport Compatibility Platform. It's the first platform released to ensure interoperability between HyperTransport-enabled devices.

Leading up to WWDC, which kicks off on June 23, 2003 in San Francisco, Apple has noted that the event will be the first opportunity most developers outside of Apple will have to see Panther in action. Panther is Apple's code-name for its next major revision to Mac OS X. Other details, outside of information on conference tracks and other events happening at the show, have been scarce.
