The enormous versatility, high performance as well as the promise of being a single cable and port that can accomplish so much has made Thunderbolt 3 remain the most outstanding one among a wide customer base.
As a matter of fact, with the passage of time technology is getting increasingly common on the high end portables, however, it is crucial to point out to the fact that it still remains far from ubiquitous.
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) lately moved on to make an announcement citing that indeed they had measures underway that were as a matter of fact going to ensure that they made steps forward in terms of adopting Thunderbolt 3’s.
It is important to point out the fact that the company may soon be integrating Thunderbolt 3 into its wide array of processors.
The third quarter of 2015 saw the first Thunderbolt 3 chips codenamed “Alpine Ridge. The other thing worth noting is also the fact the previous year witnessed Kaby Lake chipsets unveiled and that none of them included the native Thunderbolt 3 support and among them was the high-end Z270.
As a matter of fact, the various vendors were compelled to actually add Alpine chips but this time around separately. Information from some of the top reliable sources indicates that most of them actually opted not to move ahead with that. Well, the reasoning behind their decision was the fact that they wanted by all means to avoid the extra complexity as well as the extra expenses.
The wide range of related issues got to evaporate and much is attributable to the integration of Thunderbolt 3 as part and parcel of the processors. There is still much of the heavy lifting on the part of the system builders in case they will remain committed to hooking up the processors to the associated physical interface.
However, some of the top trusted and reliable sources have indicated there is nothing that can’t be done provided there is dedication and it will turn out rather easy driving much wider adoption. A lot of questions have been posed but Intel has declined to comment when asked by a number of news reporters to reveal which processors would come with controllers.
