HT1.0 and MT/s definition


I want to upgrade my cpu to AMD Phenom X4 9850. The motherboard is a A6VMX from foxconn. The MB spec says it supports am2+ cpu's with ht1.0 interface. So I would like to know, what is ht1.0 and the always referred MT/s and of course, the final question is:
Will the MB support the cpu (maybe with performance loss)

Thank you

HT 1.0 is HyperTransport v1.0, which is a point-to-point communications link limited to 800 MHz frequency for AMD cpus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HyperTransport and http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/19/2.  MT/s is Mega Transfers per second and is twice the frequency, since the transport operates on double data rate (rising and falling signal edges).  Given the HT1.0 limitation, I would choose a more recent board to maximize the 9850 cpu you are considering; in addition, the cpu compatibility list http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&model=A6VMX&cputype= does not include 125watt cpus like the 9850.
