Thunderboltat 10Gbps is almost 60% of the speed of [Displayport](17.28 Gbit/s)1.2, and a full 3.5% slower than [HDMI](10.2 Gbit/s)1.3/1.4 :iagree:
Wow! I'm so impressed, I'm rushing out to replace my PS3, Bluray Player, Home Theater system, my 2x HDTV's, my 3x PC LCD monitors, all my HDMI & HDMI/DVI cables, two laptops, 3 PC's, USB HDD enclosures, printers, scanners and flash drives to get Thunderbolt/Lightpeak models right now!!!
I'm sooooo over HDMI and Displayport! With Lightpeak/Thunderbolt operating slower, and adding no benefits at all over HDMI & displayport technology, I just can't wait for inferior proprietary thunderbolt technology to steamroll the superior open standard technology.
Open technology sucks so badly, and everyone hates it :iagree:
/me bows to our new A/V overlords, Intel :iagree:
On your knees, serf!
On the serious side, I foresee a large market in Thunderbolt/ligthpeak to USB adapters, and Thunderbolt/lightpeak to HDMI/Displayport Adapters, especially in the I'm an idiot and can't use a real PC, apple mac segment.
