Intel Adds Networking Emulation To Thunderbolt For 10GbE Speeds
Moreover, there's the addition of Thunderbolt Networking, which effectively acts as a crossover cable in order to allow two computers to directly connect and share information over a high-speed superhighway. Thunderbolt Networking, emulating an Ethernet connection environment, provides 10GbE throughput between two computers. OS X Mavericks already supports it, and a PC driver will be made available "soon" in order to link two PCs together or a PC to a Mac.
The industry-wide support for Thunderbolt 2 is impressive. That's the kind of progress that'll be necessary for it to succeed in the long run, and get in front of more consumer eyes.
