Intel demos new LightPeak Technology
Intel has introduced a new technology and it is been called LightPeak. LightPeak is supposed to provide a connectivity which take you transfer speed up to 10 GB/sec by using an optical cable.
It is all possible due to a small 12mm square chip in the adapter which converts the electrical signals into light pulses and the 10GB/sec transfer rate refers to simultaneous bi-directional transmission. Intel says that theoretically there is no limit for the bandwidth which LightPeak can provide. Over the coming years Intel plans to increase the bandwidth and see multi displays being served data by a single LightPeak connection. It seems that this technology is not very far as Intel plans to make the LightPeak hardware available to manufacturers by the end of this year.
