Intel Light Peak will reach 100Gbps in the next decade

It is expected that Intel will put this new standard into operation during 2011. This explains why Intel is in no hurry to support USB 3.0 since at the gates of launching this new standard to the market it would not be a good idea, for them, to support a standard free where they have no opportunity to collect patent royalties.

The new standard will use a single type of connector, which is yet to be defined, and Intel expects to multiply its transfer capacity by ten in the coming years, being, in its view, the last cable connection standard that we will know. This means that either they have high hopes that their system will become a priority in the market or they expect that in the next few years all device connectivity will be done wirelessly.

In fact, Intel’s intention is for this new standard to replace other connecting media such as HDMI, Displayport, which are precisely sponsored by multiple manufacturers and which today are the most immediate and well-known future for high-speed multimedia connectivity.

I think that Intel has it more than difficult in this task unless it licenses the technology to other manufacturers with advantages that can make these manufacturers forget everything invested in universal standards like the ones we currently enjoy, which are practically in their first stages of evolution. .
