This is good, but only works if they allow other competitors to use it. Who would adopt it for motherboard manufacture, interfacing with peripherals, or otherwise if only Intel uses it?
i can already seeing as being a complicated problem. As intel developed it and not a bored of standardizers. Intel may not share it. which would be detrimental to the growth of the PC market. but they might. Which will sandbag the PC market. they will obviously want royalties. they will probably leave out some things and force other companies to fill in the blanks. So they always have the performance advantage. <-- thats pretty much how it is now with anything. But were talking micro fiber optics. not known tested tech. so when it first hits market it will be more expensive than anything we've ever seen. not to mention depending on implementation it will probably need a total rebuild $$$$$$. Shame that we cant advance tech first then make $ they hold all the strings and charge along the way. sometimes I imagine were we would be if everything electronics didnt coast thousands of dollers.
