Light Peak is billed as a USB 3.0-killer, but it has been touted for a long time and we've seen very little evidence that adoption is coming. However, Apple may be about to make a play in the arena.
Light Peak offers speeds that make USB look life last decade's technology, which in truth it is. Rumour has it that the connections will be built into the next series of MacBooks, which may also be released the same day.
However, the big question is how quickly manufacturers will join the standard. While we're seeing some hard drives supporting USB 3.0 they are few and far between. The smart money seems to have been waiting for a Light Peak announcement. However, consumers may not want to wait.
Light Peak offers huge advantages, but so far Intel has been all talk and no trouser. Apple too is fond of promoting standards but not following through. Unless Intel can demonstrate strong support Sleuth is inclined to be sceptical.
