Like I said, Thunderbolt is something for Mac Pros with 8-cores+ that do video editing on portable RAID servers, not Macbooks. Useless to 99% of consumers, all it does is ups the price.
But its got a catchy name that alone will warrant the purchase to some

Looks like a scam to me xD

Just kidding, but yea, I am sure AMD's third party developers will come up with an alternative

Besides, this is Macbook only.

Hi All,
IF this is to be a fiber-optic cable then it has the inherant drawback of being very brittle and snapping internally if it is bent to a sharp corner. Also while with fiber it is far less prominent, distance at high transfer speeds becomes a big factor in the stability of the connection. If by chance they choose copper then there is another set of inherant problems at these speeds such as indcutive and capacative reactance as the speed of the transitions increase so do the effects of the natural inductive and capacative characteristics of the transmission media. Ultimately would the connections be reliable enough at speed to support remote gpu/cpu connections, probably not.

I mean seriously, how many people have a reason to stream 4 1080P video files from a raid array, into a laptop, into another monitor. This is extremely unrealistic. When Thunderbolt reaches its projected 100gbit/s max speed then it'll be revolutionary. Right now its just a waste of money.
Agreed. USB 3.0 is good enough for most people data needs and it's not proprietary.

Thunderbolt is just a transitory cable for Intel's attempt at creating a new standard port. It is Apple exclusive right now because OEM's are unwilling at the moment to include the interface on their product. If Thunderbolt is successful, koodo's to them for doing to transfer interfaces what OCZ did to SSD controller adoption.

One thing I'm very certain of, Thunderbolt won't achieve 100Gb/s, Intel will have moved the standard to Lightpeak's optical interconnect, wich if memory serves right has potential for 1Tb/s. But we'll have to wait for optical cables to overcome their brittleness.

This is kind of cool and all but I'll be fine sticking with my internal and external hdds, I'm not going to upgrade to something of these lines just because of the increase, when I've already forked out money towards other things.

Intel you're going to need to find a better marketing approach because for the money that will cost I'm sure there are plenty of other products be whatever it is that I may want in the near future. What you need to do is make that product scream bang for my buck or you're SOL.

What people don't seem to realise is that this is an important step to what Sun Microsystems were preaching for over 20 years - "Balanced Computing". The first big step towards this was the packet switched crossbar fabric, which is what PCI Express uses. Then the emergence of SSDs vastly improved the I/O of computing, making computers far more responsive.

Now we have 10Gb, 40Gb and 100Gb Ethernet incoming for networking, and also 10Gb Light Peak for fast local interconnects. Notice that these technologies are boasting similar speeds?

Note:

The reason why FireWire failed is that Apple demanded too-high royalties for it, per port. If they hadn't been so greedy, USB would have died instead.

This is just unnecessary, haha. I'm perfectly happy with my external's transfer speed at like 50-60MBps average, I REALLY don't need 800MBps.
