More like 20Gb/s Full Duplex.

I picked up an 11" Macbook Air a couple weeks ago for $300 off. It does everything I need it to for school use, but I've still been hoping for Thunderbolt to really take off. The ULV i5 in it would be a terrible bottleneck for any really respectable GPUs, but I would love to be able to hook up something relatively low-power for those times my friends want to get together for gaming.

I would say that 20Gb/s Full Duplex sums it up in the most accurate manner but 40Gb/s aggregate isn't wrong though. I do think saying 20Gb/s in each direction is best way to describe Thunderbolt's bandwidth.

I have a question..

I know thunderbolt can carry pcie and display port, but can it carry both at the same time?

That's pretty impressive. I hope it doesn't go the way of firewire
