The fastest way to transfer data, by INTEL

intel-thunderbolt
Intel discovered the fastest way of transferring data:- Intel discovered the fastest way o get information in and out of your PC and peripheral devices. At 10 Gbps, Thunderbolt™ technology gives you great responsiveness with high-speed data and display transfers in each direction—at the same time. With a single cable, connecting a PC to multiple devices is simple, making it easy to get and see what you want, when you want it. Thunderbolt technology gives you incredible flexibility; high performance expansion is just a cable away for new and novel uses, now and in the future.
With the 10 Gbps performance of Thunderbolt products you can

Transfer a full-length HD movie in less than 30 seconds[approx].
Backup 1 year of continuous MP3 playback in just over 10 minutes[approx].

What is Thunderbolt technology and how does it work
Developed by Intel (under the code name Light Peak), and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple. Thunderbolt technology is a new, high-speed, dual-protocol I/O technology designed for performance, simplicity, and flexibility. This high-speed data transfer technology features the following:
Dual-channel 10 Gbps per port
Bi-directional
Dual-protocol (PCI Express* and DisplayPort*)
Compatible with existing DisplayPort devices
Daisy-chained devices
Electrical or optical cables
Low latency with highly accurate time synchronization
Uses native protocol software drivers
Power over cable for bus-powered devices
ntel’s Thunderbolt controllers interconnect a PC and other devices, transmitting and receiving packetized traffic for both PCIe and DisplayPort protocols. Thunderbolt technology works on data streams in both directions, at the same time, so users get the benefit of full bandwidth in both directions, over a single cable. With the two independent channels, a full 10 Gbps of bandwidth can be provided for the first device, as well as additional downstream devices.
And all Thunderbolt devices share a common connector, allowing users to daisy chain devices one after another with interoperable cables.

  1. this is really cool
    would there be an option to plug in a portable hard drive or a big flash drive?

    • ya of course but the device where you want to plug in should support it, i mean should have a thunderbolt port..apple’s recently launched mac-books are having such ports…
      and there is also a report from Intel that they advanced their technology and it will support 50 gbps of transfer rate..
