This week Maximum PC described what Thunderbolt 2.0 is and that currently a dozen "products" for it are out. What and where? I can't find Z87 Haswell motherboards supporting Thunderbolt 2.0. What was Paul Lilly referring to?

Wouldn't worry about Thunderbolt too much because there's nothing really out there that supports it.

I just sprang for a Core i7 4770K CPU and am vetting motherboards for it. I want to future proof my investment as much as possible so that it will still be decent in four years from now; it's future functionality I'm worried about. Lacie is just beginning to roll out portable Thunderbolt HDD's and now there's a 128GB Thunderbolt thumbdrive. I work in the video/broadcast TV industry and this would be a huge benefit where I work. Thank you.

HDDs on Thunderbolt is pointless because HDDs don't even max out the bandwidth on USB 3.0. And USB 3.0 is more ubiquitous. I'd rather get something that's more accessible. If anything, Thunderbolt is more useful for portable systems so that you just have to connect one cable and you have everything.
