Default More Thunderbolt coming

From the Intel Developer's Conference -
"Intel’s Kirk Skaugen, VP and GM of the company’s PC Client Group, said in a presentation last week that “hundreds” of devices using the Thunderbolt technology pioneered in Apple products would enter the market by 2013"

More Thunderbolt chip options for PCs as well, so more will be turning up on PC motherboards in the near future.

And a new 10,000 RPM Western Digital HDD.

Default Thunderbolt and play

Can you describe your experience with Thunderbolt and Play? Since there is no official word from NI about testing would like to know what anecdotal stuff there is out there. Thanks

I have had no problems, even running multiple mics on QL Pianos. I am running a RAID as I also edit video. I am glad I have had RAID as I had one drive go bad and had to rebuild a drive once but no data lost. RAID does slow things down over many small drives and I would be tempted to get an SSD for QLP for loading speed (though it really is not that bad).

Given the premium price (200+50 for cable) I think it is only worthwhile if one has no other way of adding fast storage (eSATA). It is a plus for video though.
