One Chip to rule them all, One Chip to find them,
One Chip to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Intel where the Shadows lie.

This sounds like BTX and RD-Ram all over again "Hey, why don't you dump all your existing knowledge and equipment for this technically superior, but almost wholly unsupported new proprietary standard? It's what all the cool kids are doing!" Considering the bottle neck in transfer is end divices, not interfaces (most new SSDs still aren't fully utilizing either USB3 or Sata6, and the last time I checked, external video cards were not very popular) this is purely a money grab for Intel since only they make the chips or write the standards.

Remember when Intel tried to force another standard on everyone with BTX?  We all know what happened to that!  If you dont get support from the masses, it doomed to fail.  So with only apple on board, and no PC Venders named to support the technology, its not going to last!
