5 Things You Need to Know About Thunderbolt
Sightings Intel Thunderbolt CALIFORNIA - At the launch of a new Mac Book Pros, Intel announced the presence of Thunderbolt technology, which according to Intel as a new way to mentrasnfer data. The technology was originally named Light Peak is a new era for shifting the position of many of the current use of protocols such as PCs, FireWire, HDMI, SATA, SCSI, and USB. Cited by PC Magazine, Monday (28/02/2011), Thunderbolt offers not only new technologies, as well as its ability equivalent to USB 3.0.
Here are 5 advantages Thunderbolt, you deserve to know,1. Super fast in transmitting data. Thunderbolt combines the capabilities of PCI Express (PCIe) and DisplayPort protocol, and able to bidireksional transferring data between computers and peripherals with 10 Gbps speed, fast enough to transfer the length of Blu Ray movies in under 30 seconds, and more than twice the speed of USB 3.0 (4 , 8 Gbps).
2. Answering the riddle. Although originally positioned as Intel's Light Peak optical technology, but the first iteration will use copper wires. In addition to cheap technology and of course consume energy more concise.
3. The future will be faster. Intel has stated that, in the next decade, it is possible for Thunderbolt technology to eventually scale up to a speed of 100 Gbps. (However, it is unlikely that this speed can be achieved without an optical cable)
4. Re-port for duty. Although the Thunderbolt was designed to work with the transmission protocol, but the specific prot should be designed to take full advantage of the speed capability. Thunderbolt port on the new MacBook is identical to the Mini DisplayPort jack, so that each mini-DisplayPort cable or adapter, should work on it.
5. Wonders of miniaturization. Thunderbolt has been made possible by Intel miniaturization of optical transceivers are required, which convert electricity to light and vice versa. (Tyo) For your mobile users,
