Thunderbolt is twice as fast as USB3.
USB3 have had difficult to gain a foothold within the world of computers and accessories, it has been speculated that the reason is Intel also have many other computer components.
When Apple now instead run the Thunderbolt, is there nothing to indicate that USB 3 will not be more than a parenthesis in the history of the computer.
If there is any company that can get the IT-world to agree on a standard, it’s Apple. It doesnt matter if you own a Mac, or think that Mac is nothing for you, the reason is that all the other companies are too keen to ignore Mac-users.
In this case, it is not something negative, Thunderbolt, is two times faster than USB 3 and has many other exciting features.
