They could go ahead and release their new technology, but I bet it'll be more expensive then it's worth (at least in my opinion most of the time).

I don't have any personal use for such a small device.

I hope somebody manages to obtain more information about the Intel 510 series solid state drives that are due to be released on March 1st.

GeekApprovedWow this is life changing information.

still under NDA / embargo, however, they will be more $$/GB than Gen2 drives. Still worth getting one, as I will put my old Gen2 into my PS3.

Agreed DX who cares if a company that locks everything down and hates Open Source comes out with a new technology before everyone else because they paid money to have rights to it first on the market so they can line their pockets with more money.

Especially during such hard times money wise for everyone who isn't the top 1% in the world with all the money lol.

Maybe Lightpeak will take over from firewire, if the technology lends itself to video production as well.

I thought Intel would allow light to transfer info via fiber optics integrated onto electricity to light and light to electricity?

And LightPeak doesn't? I think you'll find that LightPeak is a fibre optic based connection which does indeed use light frequencies for it's bandwidth, which by the way is the basis for quantum computing.

wildcatherderSo, you're saying there's no story today but there will be a story tomorrow?

HAHA, good one...

Additionally, and unrelated, Shouldn't something called Light Peak be coupled with something called Lightning Bolt not Thunder Bolt? Thunder is sound, lightning is light...

Actually it is a term that means the same thing. Thunder Clap refers to the noise... Thunder Bolt refers to the bolt of lightning...

@schizofrog
the beta version of lightpeak (aka the one in the MBP) will probably not use light, but instead use a copper based connection (maybe thats why they called it thunderbolt instead....)

@burnley14
i guess you missed the point that lightpeak was suppose to actually use light......

The only event Intel needs to focus on is when it's 2nd generation chipset for the p67 mobo's come out.

Put Up or SHUT UP Intel.

*crosses fingers* I hope it is lightpeak, I am waiting to upgrade, and will not bite the bullet until lightpeak is available. This is going to be a huge game-changer for the AV industry!

When Intel and Apple get together you can bet some credit card limits will be reached, houses refinanced, children sold, etc, etc.

Ironic as Apple uses and contributes back to the open source community much more than its monopolistic counterpart.

As for this news, even if it's Lightpeak, won't be too enthused about it. Sure, sounds great, but at what cost. If it's only good for professional equipment, it'll just be as much use as FireWire became.

Another example of what once was one of the best, most rigorously edited, Tech sites on the web, becoming a rumour mill who doesn't bother with whether or not a story has any "real content."
