Intel has unveiled a new technology called Light Peak, which would replace all existing cables for interfaces such as DVI, DisplayPort, FireWire, USB, HDMI. On optical fiber and laser-based technique is ÃÂbertragubngsraten data with up to 10 gigabits / s (1.25 MB / s) over distances of up to 100 meters can pass bidirectionally through a simple optical cables - are planned in the future, even 100 Gbit / s. . This would make it possible to walk all the data so far are sent to external devices via various cables through a single permit. And this cable would be for the foreseeable future is no longer the bottleneck through which to squeeze data - 10 Gigabit would be enough to make you send the next generation of hard drive data at full speed - the distinction between external or internal hard drive would be (now lapsed in the speed as is already the case of plates connected via eSATA or Fiber Channel are). The optical transmission would also avoid any electromagnetic interference on the transmission. In a demonstration, Intel showed a video on a HD monitor that was connected via Light Peak 100m cable to a PC. Concurrently, which is also promoted by Intel Ultra-Wideband (UWB), sends the data via radio and no longer includes cable. Sure is not yet clear when LightPeak will appear on the first motherboard and how much will cost the individual components that should already be on the market next year. Sony certainly has declared its support, and Intel has to make the goal LightPeak the new standard.
