I will worry about Thunderbolt when it becomes mainstream. I have been around in the IT field for too long. Seen these types of products come and go too many times. I think there is a place for TB, but I am not going to play guinea pig with my wallet for Intel.

All this talk of daisy chaining thunderbolt devices brings back fond memories of SCSI address conflicts, active terminators, and my SCSI catch-all box with dozens of cables and adapters.

Cy-Kill.........USB 3.0 is not native to intel and is third party driven. Thunderbolt is intel. I think intel is worried if it supports it natively why would you buy their thunderbolt crap.

JLloyd13 you made a read-o. It does say USB 3.0..............stop drinking Decaffeinated and get a double shot.

"Thunderbolt crap" Are you serious with that statement? Thunderbolt is going to replace USB as devices require more and more bandwidth.

Why don't they just make all the USB ports on the mobo into v3, seeing as how it's backwards compatible?

Wasn't there just an article, I forget where, talking about how Thunderbolt was already on it's way out since there's such a high premium for it with limited products available... that also have a higher premium.
Some of this is just early adopter/growing pains for the tech, but with it competing with a USB3.0 that's becoming standardized much faster, I'm thinking Thunderbolt is going to have a slow go of it until USB3.0 loses some of it's shiny new goodness.
Maybe a year or two, Thunderbolt will be more readily available as USB3.0 will be the new standard. With that, will hopefully be more affordable and available Thunderbolt devices, some of which may be USB3.0/TB ready for broader compatibility.
By then, SATA12Gb/s will be stealing the show though ^_^

No they are on their way in... technology gets cheaper as it is implemented more.

you guys made a typo

"Thunderbolt is 2 times faster than USB 2.0 and an incredible 20 times faster than USB 2.0."

you say usb 2.0 twice. it should read:

"Thunderbolt is 2 times faster than USB 3.0 and an incredible 20 times faster than USB 2.0."
