Intel has unveiled the latest version of the Thunderbolt cable standard. Thunderbolt will soon support 4K video and 20 Gbps transfer. Is Intel looking to compete with HDMI?<br /><br /><h3>Thunderbolt soon to support 4K</h3>HDMI is the preferred video connection in pretty much any consumer electronics device today but Intel is making its play with the second-generation of the Thunderbolt cable standard.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/thunderboltv2.jpg" alt="Thunderbolt cable"><br><i>Thunderbolt will soon support 4K video</i></p><br />Thunderbolt will soon support 4K video and data transfer up to 20 Gbps (on each of the two channels). The first-generation of Thunderbolt support 10 Gbps, similar to what the current HDMI standard supports.<br /><br />Intel did put a lot of emphasis on the video capabilities, which could mean that they are planning to take on HDMI in TVs and boxes. When the industry moves to Ultra HD / 4K we need a new cable standard and Intel knows that. A new HDMI version is also in development.<br /><br />Apple was one of the first companies to implement Thunderbolt in its Macs but Intel says that more than 200 licensees are current approved.
