Thunderbolt is a revolutionary

Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a‭ ‬single‭, ‬compact port‭. ‬It sets new standards for speed‭, ‬flexibility‭, ‬and simplicity‭.‬

Starting as a simple idea‭ ‬–‭ ‬to create an incredibly fast input/output technology that just about anything can plug into‭, ‬Thunderbolt‭, ‬also with FireWire‭, ‬becomes one of the most popular and flexible I/O technology‭.‬

Thunderbolt controllers multiplex one or more individual data lanes from connected PCIe and DisplayPort devices for transmission‭ ‬via one duplex Thunderbolt lane‭, ‬then de-multiplex them for consumption by PCIe and DisplayPort devices on the other end‭. ‬A single Thunderbolt port supports up to six Thunderbolt devices via hubs or daisy chains‭; ‬as many of these as the host has DP sources may be Thunderbolt monitors‭.‬

Based on the two main technology in your MacBook Air‭, ‬MacBook Pro‭, ‬iMac‭, ‬or Mac mini‭, ‬you are able to use the full capacity and‭ ‬potential of your system‭. ‬Unlike FireWire‭, ‬you can use Thunderbolt to connect external devices like Storages(RAID arrays‭) ‬and video capture solutions directly to your Mac‭, ‬use existing USB‭, ‬even connect to Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks‭ ‬—‭ ‬using simple adapters‭.‬

This ultra speed and flexibility is based on its two channels on the same connector with 10‭ ‬Gbps of throughput in both directions‭. ‬We can move data to and from peripherals up to 20‭ ‬times faster than with USB 2.0‭ ‬and up to 12‭ ‬times faster than with FireWire‭ ‬800‭.‬

Thunderbolt supports almost all kind of displays‭, ‬which make it the most appropriate technology which ever exists‭.‬

Leveraging the I/O protocols on a single transport enables engineers to innovate new system design configurations‭, ‬allowing for‭ ‬standalone performance expansion technologies that use existing native device drivers‭. ‬Thunderbolt technology also enables the introduction of thinner and lighter laptops without sacrificing I/O performance‭, ‬and extends to reach other I/O technologies by using PCIe-based adapters‭, ‬making gigabit Ethernet‭, ‬FireWire‭, ‬or eSATA easy to create‭.
