Thunderbolt is at the core of our HomeKit Australia business.
Featuring 40Gbps data throughput, daisy chaining and the ability to connect 8K monitors through one cable, Thunderbolt 4 has emerged as the preferred standard for high-speed data transfer.
Thunderbolt combines PCIe, DisplayPort, and power as an all-in-one standard, allowing fast data transfers, fast display support and charging - all available in a single cable.
Working closely with Apple, Intel released the first version of Thunderbolt on Apple’s MacBook Pro in 2011.
Thunderbolt and later Thunderbolt 2 used a Display Port connector which was incompatible with USB varieties that dominated PC computers.
Originally invented by Intel’s Silicon Photonics group, the technology was slated to run through optical fibres. It was known within Intel as Light Peak.
Alongside Apple, Intel found they could achieve similar data throughput at significantly lower cost by using traditional copper wires.
The trademark “Thunderbolt” was registered by Apple who later ceded the name to Intel who still held the technology’s intellectual rights.
