Thoughts about Intel Apple ThunderBolt

Thunderbolt-logo
Today Apple announced some fashionable MacBook Pro laptops which point a distinct I/O harbour called TunderBolt, formerly codenamed LightPeak.
This virgin connexion allows up to 10gbps, which translates to 1.25GB/s.
Intel promises that contemporary DisplayPort devices can be hooked up to a ThunderBolt port, which is correct salient (The ThunderBolt is basically a "miniDP on steroids").
It wealth that provided you own a original LCDA Liquid Crystal Display is a flat panel display, electronic visual display, or video display that uses the light modulating properties of liquid crystals overseer (such as a Dell U2410, DellDell is a computer company that produces a wide range of both desktop and laptop systems U2711, HP DreamColor LP2480zx, etc.), which has a DisplayPort connector, then you can connect it to the ThunderBolt port.
LCDs that don't gain a DisplayPort connector can be hooked up using an adpater.

Regarding the celerity of this connector:
Currently there's no certain (cheap) system to extent such a alpine I/O, so its gonna be solid to crack the velocity claim.
Maybe somehow connecting 3 or 4 SSDs in RAID0 (such as OCZ's Vertex 3 Pro), we might be able to distance over 1.25GB/s.
This testament lack a different high-performance Attack card with a ThunderBolt connector.

USB3.0 has a max notional rapidity of 4.8gbps, which is less than half of ThunderBolt. However, now real-world performance of the fastest USB3.0 slogan maxes absent at 3.2gbps (400MB/s).

Let's wait for the reviews to come in, and gape what this ThunderBolt technology is actually unreal of.
