SANTA CLARA – As part of an in-depth briefing, we got a demo of the new Thunderbolt technology making data transfers at rates approaching 800 Mbytes/second at Intel's corporate headquarters here today.
The demo used one of the new Apple MacBook Pro systems linked via Thunderbolt to a prototype storage array from Promise Technology. A display used in the demo was not linked via Thunderbolt.
You can see a video of the demo here.
