Apple may have grabbed the headlines this morning, but the day still belongs to Intel.

It turns out that Light Peak was the code name, but Thunderbolt is what we’ll be calling the technology from now on.In a release this morning Intel said their piece about Thunderbolt. It turns out that all the vital facts were also mentioned in Apple’s release–it’s a bi-directional 10Gbps connection, it works with PCI Express for data and DisplayPort for displays, and it’s really, really fast. We’ll learn more technical details later on, but we already know that it can act in place of USB, FireWire, DisplayPort, VGA, and ethernet connections.From what we’ve heard, there is no light in Light Peak yet. The technology still uses copper to work with the logic board, but that the potential to move forward from it’s current state.The full release is here.
