    Light Peak is the code-name for a new high-speed optical cable technology designed to connect your electronic devices to each other. Light Peak delivers high bandwidth starting at 10Gb/s with the potential ability to scale to 100Gb/s over the next decade. At 10Gb/s, you could transfer a full-length Blu-Ray movie in less than 30 seconds. Optical technology also allows for smaller connectors and longer, thinner, and more flexible cables than currently possible. Light Peak also has the ability to run multiple protocols simultaneously over a single cable, enabling the technology to connect devices such as peripherals, workstations, displays, disk drives, docking stations, and more.

    Interesting development in this story, seems this all started with the guys over at Apple.

    Engadget has it on very good authority that there's a legitimate reason for the odd appearance of a Hackintosh at IDF last week: Apple was actually the catalyst for Light Peak and is working closely with Intel on the project.
