Intel's MXC Interconnect Could Transfer 1.6 Terabits Per Second
The proper plans are expected to be revealed in San Francisco at the Intel Developer Forum next month, and it will be based on two years of work with Corning Cable Systems. Obviously, a cable that fast would be able to handle an almost insane amount of data. 4K video feeds? No problem. Terabytes of data changing hands? Yeah, that won't take long.
The only question beyond what's told, of course, is adoption. We can only wonder if Intel has shared prototype plans with partners; we'd love for this stuff to hit commercial machines sooner rather than later.
