I just read this thread at News.com about the HyperTransport consortium announcing version 2.0 of HyperTransport next week. http://news.com.com/2100-1006_3-5152161.html?tag=nefd_top While reading it a light went on. Could this be what Apple has been waiting for? Have they implemented the new HyperTransport and couldn't release it until the announcement was officially made? I know this is highly unlikely and bordering on conspiracy theory but the thought is fun to ponder. It is way more likely they are still dumping old stock prior to a new release.
