Are we finally going to see a real RDC?

Postposted on Mon Mar 12, 2012 10:11 pm

While browsing the news, I found some information about Intel's Thunderbolt technology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbol ... terface%29

Seems to be high bandwidth optical interconnection of some sorts, that's capable to drive PCIe/display over 10 meters or so.

That would be something awesome if this gets released soon. Imagine having a net-book, and channelling graphical and audio rendering to a basement where super-noisy server with 3x SLI crunches the rendering. That would be amazing. 8)

Doesn't it say they dropped the optical for copper because of cost? (Been awhile since I read about it.) I doubt that's changed...
