Intel Light Peak technology to be available in 1H 2011?

Posted on Thursday, November 04 2010 @ 12:48:57 CET by

Looks like Light Peak may arrive a lot sooner than anticipated. CNET claims the technology is now on track to appear in products in the first half of 2011, and the site also believes that Apple may be one of the first firms to use it.
In this respect, Light Peak eclipses USB 3.0, which is not supported by Apple and is only supported sporadically by PC makers on certain models. The reason? Intel has yet to support USB 3.0 in the chipsets that accompany its processors.

But Apple is expected to back Light Peak, if past comments from Intel still hold. Shortly after its annual developer conference in 2009, Intel said that it had showed the technology to third parties, got feedback, then incorporated the feedback into the next design, adding, at that time, that "Apple is an innovating force in the industry." (Apple has reportedly claimed that it conceived the idea for Light Peak.)
