Encyclopedia > Megatransfer

Megatransfer is a term used in computer technology, referring to a number of data transfers (or operations). It is abbreviated as MT, and most commonly used for measuring the number of transfers per second (MT/s or MT/sec). 1 MT/s means one million transfers per second.


Megatransfer usually refers to the "effective" number of transfers, or transfers perceived from "outside" of a system or component, as opposed to the internal speed or rate. One example is a computer bus running at double data rate. If its internal clock runs at 100 MHz, then the effective rate is 200 MT/s. In computer architecture, a bus is a subsystem that transfers data or power between computer components inside a computer or between computers. ... In computing, a computer bus operating with double data rate transfers data on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal, effectively nearly doubling the data transmission rate without having to deal with the additional problems of timing skew that increasing the number of data lines would introduce. ... A megahertz (MHz) is one million (106) hertz, a measure of frequency. ...
