Intel Hopes To Thunderbolt 3 All Things

Intel is back in the news again, but this time for all good reasons. The technology giant has been reported to be planning to ditch the idea of expecting third-party chipmakers that make use of the company's premium product such as Thunderbolt 3, to pay royalties. If this turns out to be true then things, especially for hardware manufacturers, will become duly easy and smooth. Through the use of Intel's data transfer specification, the hardware manufacturers will be able to provide their products at a much cheaper rate.

According to a report published by The Verge, Thunderbolt 3 - which is a standard product used by the majority of the third-party manufacturers, is essentially put to use when product developers wish to switch from USB-C to Mini Display-Port. Such things usually take place as USB-C is quite a complicated specification especially due to the fact that the port is a physical feature. Therefore, Thunderbolt 3 plays a vital role in providing a solution to this problem.

Intel's licensing fees, according to a report published by Wired, causes the actual Thunderbolt 3 to become much more expensive than it already is. With the latest speculated move, Intel hopes to encourage many of the other third-party manufacturers to switch to their eco-system in more than one peripheral in the product segment.

To recall, back in 2015, Intel upgraded its Thunderbolt by adding an improved user-interface and adopting the common USB-C feature. However, this time Intel plans on attempting their investment onto making Thunderbolt available for one and all.

Thunderbolt 3 features a transfer speed of up to 40Gbps, which allows users to operate 4K movies in just about 30 seconds. It can easily be connected to other 4K peripherals as well. While an official word is yet to be released by the company; it is safe to assume that the products are about to get much cheaper with time.
