    Default About Thunderbolt, the new Macbook connection

    Hey guys, what do you think about Thunderbolt?

    Intel Realeased today because the new Macs are going to be introduced soon and they will use this technology...
    http://newsroom.intel.com/community/...c-just-arrived



    It will have the same conector as the Display Port and will be able to transfer data up to 10 Gpbs :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    One thing that I didn't heard a mention was about power...
    It will have the same power issues as USB does?
    Can we plug lots of devices with a hub and all of them will have enough power to run smoothly?

    Also, if you have not been keeping up with the technology, it is hotpluggable.

    Would be nice if we could be able to use a USB 2.0 hub and with all his ports working at full speed and with no power issues

    It's pretty cool but I'll keep my mbp for another year, I don't NEED it right now.

    I see this being a huge benefit for people with HD cameras, but am I wrong or is there no cameras out there that support this technology? For early adopters I think this is a pretty meaningless feature until other products can catch up and even then how much will that added feature cost on new products?

    Lots of big name audio manufacturers will no doubt jump on this new standard purely because of the throughput. Don't know if it will end up in DJ soundcards soon, but the big studio equipment will adopt it quickly I believe. It could be really awesome, cause they say it can scale up to 100gb/s.
