Intel to Support Light Peak before USB 3.0

Intel to Support Light Peak before USB 3.0
/* Story Top Left 2010 300x250, created 7/15/10 */ google_ad_slot = "8340327155";
 
 

USB 3.0 support pushed to 2012


Intel is always at work on new technology that will come to the computer market. At times Intel forgoes supporting some common specifications on its platforms in favor of developing or supporting technology that it has more direct influence on. This is the case with USB 3.0.

USB 3.0 is offered on a number of computers and notebooks already that are on the market. However, all of those machines support USB 3.0 with third-party chipsets because Intel is not supporting USB 3.0 directly at this time. What Intel is going to support, which no one else is supporting right now, is its own Light Peak technology.

Light Peak looks better than USB 3.0 on paper with peak speeds of up to 10Gbps. That is very fast and it can support those speeds in both directions at the same time. Some speculation since we first heard about Light Peak has Intel and Apple working on the tech. It would be no surprise to see Light Peak surface first on Apple machines considering that Apple is not supporting USB 3.0 either.

Apparently, Light Peak will be here very soon with a source citing the first half of 2011 reports CNET News. That same source says that we should expect Light Peak earlier in the first half of the year. Support for USB 3.0 will eventually come to Intel chipsets though according to the company. However, that support might be as far out as 2012. That would give Intel's competing Light Peak technology a good lead of a half-year or more in the market as far as support directly on Intel platforms. I would not be surprised in the least for us to hear folks from the USB 3.0 camp crying foul over this.
