Apple introduced Intel’s thunderbolt technology first time with MacBook Pro lineup in February this year and, since then, has blended the technology into its many products such as MacBook Air, MacBook Mini and MacBook Pro. A source from PC player told to DigiTimes that Intel has notified to its partners that the company is going to fully release its ‘’Thunderbolt Technology’’ with first-tier PC players in April 2012.

The “Thunderbolt Technology” has been developed by Intel for improved performance, scalability, simplicity and flexibility with Desktops and Laptops. Its allows bi-directional 10 Gbps I/O data transfer over a single cable for improved HD display and robust system performance. It will also allow PC manufacturers to make thinner and lighter laptops with sacrificing I/O performance.

The PC players are highly engrossed in preparation to launch motherboards, notebooks and desktops PCs to support the Thunderbolt technology. Recently, Sony and Asus have decided to adopt the new technology, however, in June Sony had declared that it would develop Thunderbolt PC with its VAIO Z laptop. The reality unveiled later that the company had used the early version of Intel’s technology instead of Thunderbolt. Also, Gigabyte Technology might reportedly launch a Thunderbolt –capable motherboard in April 2011 to compete Asustek and AsRock—would support the same Thunderbolt technology.

The source also explains, “To speed up the standardization of Thunderbolt, Intel is cooperating with Apple which is the sole vendor currently to have PC products featuring Thunderbolt technology. As demand for the technology has seen obvious growth, Intel is ready to release the technology for public use.”

Intel had told earlier this year that Thunderbolt technology has grabbed the attention of a number of companies like Canon, Western Digital and Adobe. But, the issue arises with the price of Thunderbolt chip which is expected to be greater than US$20. The source also said that the company needs to standardize its technology in order to reduce the price of the chip.

The confliction of adoptability of Thunderbolt technology crop up with USB 3.0 in terms of the data transmission technology for the next generation. It seems that Thunderbolt is unable to attract IT industries due to sych challenges which are vital. Recently, HP— one of the largest PC manufacturers in the world—has decided to go with USB 3.0 due to non-proposition value with Thunderbolt. Presently, the stronghold for the Thunderbolt is the successfully provision and experiences of the technology to users by Apple, which seems fruitful. Alongside, Intel’s claim might boost up to the adaptation of the technology over USB 3.0 in next few quarters.
