More on Thunderbolt it seems that it has 2 sets of specs-

So it's been a busy couple of weeks for me leading into NAB, but I wanted to post a bit more about THUNDERBOLT.

To say the confusion about this new technology is amazing, even I had been given conflicting information, mostly because of the differences between the Copper and later Fibre versions of this technology, mainly about what can and can't be done.

I posted what I had been given as specs for Thunderbolt and mine are correct, as far as they go. You see there is a big difference between the first gen of the release that uses Copper backbone and the FULL theoretic specs that cover the release of the optical fiber versions,in which the limits are listed as the specs.

So the theoretical limits of Thunderbolt do actually mean that, in the future, we will be handling data at 10Gbps via 2- bi directional channels, or as Jeremy G first posted, a total maximum aggregate throughput total of 40Gbps. The issue is (according to my source) that we are at least a year or 2 away access to that level of the pipe, the release of the fiber compatible backplane and those of us with the just released first released generation of the thunderbolt chipset will most likely not ever be able to handle the maximum pipe.

As with all technology, the theoretical is always better than the actual.
