Intel VP Kirk Skaugen said that USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt are complementary:
We already know AMD will offer USB 3.0 support in the chipsets that accompany its Llano processors later this year. What about Intel? According to CNet News, Intel VP Kirk Skaugen addressed that subject at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing... but didn't stop there.
Skaugen reportedly stated, "Intel is going to support USB 3.0 in the 2012 client platform. We're going to support Thunderbolt capability. We believe they're complementary." He added, "We encourage all of you working on peripherals around the PC to engage on both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt."

Funny we could develop Thunderbolt in a year and a half, but it's taking us 4 years to get USB 3 into our chipsets.
Funny... innovation, market leader those are all terms they like to throw out at IDF's but when the rubber meets the road they are all about proprietary BS.
