Corning optical Thunderbolt cables Intel certified, headed to retail
Making good on promises from <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293732==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/04/usb.30.cable.also.planned/" rel='nofollow'>January</a> to release an optical Thunderbolt cable, Corning has announced at the IFA tradeshow that Intel has certified its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293733==http://www.corning.com/CableSystems/OpticalCablesbyCorning/products/thunderbolt.aspx#.UjEsZRYZ5-Q" rel='nofollow'>all-fiber optic Thunderbolt cable</a> for release. The technology uses Corning's ClearCurve technology to allow for high data speeds with significantly less data loss than copper cables, allowing for longer cabling.<br />
<br />
Bernhard Deutsch, vicd president of product line management at Corning, said that "based on Intel's Thunderbolt protocol, Corning is providing a fast, innovative cabling solution designed for data-intensive connectivity. Thunderbolt Optical Cables by Corning empower users to quickly access and move data between devices at distances copper cables cannot."<br />
<br />
Existing copper Thunderbolt cables average out at 2 meters (6.6 feet) with a maximum allowable length of 3 meters (9.9 feet). The new offering from Corning will start at 10 meters (33 feet), and work upwards with lengths of up to 100 meters having been tested by the company. Pricing and exact product mix has not been determined.<br />
