[Anandtech]New Thunderbolt Controllers (DSL4510/4410) and Future 20Gbps Falcon Ridge TB Controller Announced - Page 3

post #21 of 22
ok, try and grasp the idea of, the faster the data gets sent the more it gets distorted by EM waves. in other words, there will be a point in time where the data will be transfered fast enough, that it cannot be efficiently transported even through a 1 foot copper cable! (EM waves can cause interference at these levels) pushing 10gbps through copper is already a challenge for companies. Also, plastic fibre optics are a lot better in terms of durability than the standard SiO2 (pure glass) fibre optics and to prevent kinking the cable, a fibre glass support can be put inside the cable aswell, although that would bring the cost up biggrin.gif

sure fibre could theoretically be faster for thunderbolt. it doesn't mean it would functionally make any difference for what people use thunderbolt for though. or that it would be cost effective anytime soon
