First look at Thunderbolt peripherals on the horizon



Intel's new Thunderbolt I/O technology, which boasts up to 10Gbps connectivity between host machines like Apple MacBook Pros and peripherals, such as storage devices, has started to make its way into commercial products.  

The technology, designed to provide better support for audio and video than earlier interconnect technologies, was first announced in 2009. In addition to Apple, which helped Intel develop Thunderbolt, Sony and other computer makers are expected to support the speedy interconnect.
