Thunderbolt3, do-everything interface

May 27, 2017 — BarryK
Intel has made licensing of the Thunderbolt3 interface "free", in an attempt to encourage its adoption.

Fascinating! I look forward to seeing this on a mobile phone.
PCs too. Apparently, Apple and Microsoft are in on this. Intel plan to integrate Thunderbolt3 into the CPU chip, thus ensuring its adoption on the PC platform.
