Default Intel boasts Thunderbolt will be everywhere

Intel says that there will be a hundred devices packed with its Thunderbolt connections by the end of the year.

So far the only people to see a Thunderbolt connection have been Apple users.

This announcement is pretty good news because it means that you can plug multiple things into the one port and have transfer speeds which outclass USB 3.0.

The announcement was made during a 52-minute presentation at the IDF conference in Beijing, by VP of the Intel PC Client Group Kirk Skaugen.

Skaugen said that there were already dozens of Thunderbolt connections available in the marketplace on products like storage devices.

He said that Intel was on track to deliver approximately a hundred different devices by the end of the year, and into 2013, there will be hundreds of different Thunderbolt devices.

Thunderbolt is expected to be seen on some Ultrabooks this year. The fact that the height of some laptops are now starting to be limited by the physical size of VGA connectors means that Thunderbolt will let designers squeeze the chassis size even more.
