Intel’s Light Peak Transfer Technology - PCSTATS.com Intel’s Light Peak Transfer Technology
Thu, Jan 06 2011 | 2:13AM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"While computer manufacturers may just be getting their heads around USB 3.0, it seems there are much bigger revolutions on the horizon. Intel’s Light Peak solution is an exciting new laser technology that is promising transfer speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second, and will give transfer technology somewhere to grow beyond the limitations of copper wire. Intel are expecting Light Peak to obtain 100 Gbps speeds eventually, and that it will have a 10-year plus lifespan in which to do so.

Copper interconnects are fast approaching their limitations, and developers are looking for new ways to transmit information without the electromagnetic interference that goes hand in hand with copper wire. Because Light Peak uses lasers rather than electrical signals, there is less interference and more opportunity for long distance transmission."

A quick patch update to Windows can extend the useful life of a PC. To take the fear out of Upgrading Windows 98 to Windows XP, rely on this guide. - PCSTATS Tips
