Intel’s Ivy Bridge to Feature Both USB 3.0 & Thunderbolt

We were wondering when Thunderbolt tech would trickle down to more common systems, and it looks like we’ll see it in their succeeding platform. Kirk Skaugen, VP of Intel Architecture Group, told everyone at the developer conference in Beijing that Ivy Bridge will have USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt (formerly Light Peak).

“Intel is going to support USB 3.0 in the 2012 client platform. We’re going to support Thunderbolt capability. We believe they’re complementary,” he said, according to CNET. “We encourage all of you working on peripherals around the PC to engage on both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt,” Skaugen also added.
