Intel Thunderbolt 2 Enables 4K Video Display at 20 Gbs
BenchmarkReviews.com has this Intel-provided whitepaper of sorts on Thunderbolt and 4K:
Everybody seems to be sharing video these days – at higher resolutions than ever. This always-increasing demand has helped expand growth and adoption of Intel’s ThunderboltTM technology in 2013, especially for the video editors creating the best and richest content. Originally brought to market in conjunction with Apple*, Thunderbolt is now a standard feature of Mac* computers sold in the market today. The last year has also seen the PC industry get on board in earnest, as Thunderbolt is currently included on over 30 PCs and motherboards worldwide, including on more than a dozen new 4th generation Intel® CoreTM processor-based products. In addition, there are more than 80 Thunderbolt-enabled peripheral devices, covering everything from storage drives, expansion docks, displays, and a myriad of media capture and creation hardware. More than 220 companies worldwide are developing Thunderbolt-enabled products, and that’s only going to increase.
