Apple MacBook Pro
Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro update is expected to have Intel-developed Light Peak optical cable interface, a source today carried news citing close sources. While this is not an official announcement, there are high chances that this could prove true.
Earlier in 2009, Intel had demonstrated the technology on device running on Apple’s Mac OS X. Another hint that makes the rumour strong is that the company had said that it would launch Light Peak in the first half of 2011.
The Light Peak is Intel’s optical cable interface that connects devices in a peripheral bus. This has a high bandwidth at 10 Gbit and is capable to scale to 100 Gbit by 2020. And if Apple adopts the technology, it would be able to deliver high speed connection using this technology.
A slew of rumours have been coming about Apple’s MacBook Pro. However, official confirmation about the device and technology used in it will make Mac fans happier.
