AMD already announced in public roadmaps the release in 2008 of the Direct Connect 2 architecture. Without giving more information about the date, the manufacturer has communicated more specific details. If each Opteron currently has 3 HyperTransport 16 bits links, this number will be increased to 4. It will also be possible to split each link into two 8 bits links.
With this possibility, it will be possible for example to have computers with 8 new generation Opteron or 32 cores. Each core will be directly connected to the 7 other and to a chipset via the last remaining HT bus. The design of these motherboards will surely be impressive!
