Thunderbolt Fiber Optics Cable

The future of large data transfers seems bright, although there still few devices that supports the new Apple 10Gbps Thunderbolt connection. Intel has just unvieled a new Thunderbolt canle that uses fiber optics instead of copper cable wires, this will enable faster connectivity over great distances.

AS explained by Intel spokesperson Dave Salvator:

“Copper cables provide adequate data transfer for use over short distances of up to six meters (about 20 feet), but optical cables will be good for data transfers over longer distances of tens of meters”
