Light Peak is here. Thunderbolt is the future.

thunderbolt-logoToday along with the Macbook refresh Intel have announced and release Thunderbolt (formally developed and know under the name of Light Peak). Thunderbolt  is a new I/O technology which gives insanely high speeds, currently at 10 Gbps (Thats a full HD movie, somewhere between 10-20GB in under 30 seconds), and a theoretical speed of 100Gbps in the future.

One of the purposes of Thunderbolt is to replace almost all of the all the ports on your computer into one, including FireWire, USB consumer devices, HDMI, DVI and VGA. This is so easily achievable with the 10Gbps Dual-channel speeds and with a extremely low latency it looks like this technology could easily live up to its potential  especially will Apple jumping on the bandwagon so quickly it’s almost certain that all other manufactures will start to follow suit, it’s just a case of waiting until Thunderbolt devices hit the market in mass.

So what do you think about Thunderbolt? Will it be a big the huge success it could be, or will it be pushed out by another technology such as USB 3.0? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
