    I presume this means that Intel are looking to give everyone the Thunderclap?

    It's so obvious one has to think Intel couldn't help but feel like the boy you peed in his pants in front of everybody else in his class.

    I'll do you one better,
    Why Is Gamora?

    Thunderbolt = Thunderclap

    I've never saw a TB device or even a wire for it.

    Whats's wrong with you doing all this marketing for Intel? Are you getting paid or something?

    You go from this:

    Intel releases Thunderbolt to the industry - To Become USB 4.0 at 40 Gbps


    in the text to this:
    Intel announced that it has contributed the Thunderbolt protocol specification to the USB Promoter Group

    Can you stop helping Intel promoting as the driving force in the technology world?
    They maybe contributed, but why on Earth would you put in the title that they have RELEASED it, when in the reality they CONTRIBUTED to its release. Why giving INTEL so much credit except if you are getting paid, which will make perfect sense.
    Intel is getting destroyed by AMD atm, and this will surely be a well paid help aid. Isn't it?

    Geeeesus what is your problem with the aggressive tone? It's part of the press release. And btw, the last time we got paid by Intel for anything was ... oh wait .. yeah never.

    I think you ought to remove/adjust whatever is stuck in your backdoor, you little fanboy. How much is AMD paying you to prop up a multi-million dollar company on a thread that has nothing to do with them?

    I guess we now know why USB 3 stayed with us so long and went to 3.1 and 3.2. They were waiting for something special for 4.0.
