    Intel is supporting USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt in 2012

    Intel has finally expressed on USB 3.0, confirming it was in need of multiple leaks. No content to have confirmed what we already knew, then, Intel has actually gone further: the foundry should effectively kill two birds with one stone with its future platform.

    "Intel will support USB 3.0 with the client platform in 2012," thus began the declaration by the vice president and founder, Kirk Skaugen, Intel Developer Conference in Beijing. The platform in question is naturally embodied by all the Ivy Bridge processor architecture and chipset Panther Point, whose announcement is expected at CES 2012 and will succeed the current Sandy Bridge.

    "We will take care of Thunderbolt," immediately adds vice president of Intel, adding: "We think they are complementary". Thunderbolt is the recent Intel interface, providing a throughput of 10 Gbps, twice its main competitor, USB 3.0.

    Everything leads us to believe, Intel's own admission that the future will not only support Point Panther chipset USB 3.0, but Thunderbolt as well. That will not ease the deal, for AMD and Intel as well, so will both support the USB 3.0 interface Thunderbolt and will play an additional attraction.

    It seems to me that Thunderbolt was not yet an interface. It was not a PCI-E or something like that? Yes, but apparently it has become an interface, just to see the next MacBook will have this or not. Still, the technology itself is promising, at least on paper, unfortunately the testing "real" for the moment are virtually nonexistent ...
