Acer, Asus and Lenovo plan Thunderbolt for their Ultrabooks

Thunderbolt to arrive to the Ultrabooks from Acer, Asus and Lenovo by the second quarter of this year

Intel’s Fast and versatile Thunderbolt I/O port, which combines DisplayPort and PCI Express, are reported to be made available on Acer, Asus and Lenovo Ultrabooks. They will arrive at their Ultrabook models during the second quarter.

According to DigiTimes, Thunderbolt will mostly be adopted by high-end computers this year since it costs more than $20 to add Thunderbolt connectivity to the computers.

Thunderbolt is perhaps the fastest way to transfer data between a PC and peripheral and display devices. According to Intel at 10Gbps, it can deliver great responsive data and display transfers, in both directions in parallel and even using a single cable.

Thunderbolt was earlier developed by Intel and was brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple.  So we can say, Apple was the first company to adopt the Thunderbolt and currently has a number of its computers equipped with this technology.
