Majority of people in the Tech World know Intel’s thunderbolt which began inside Apple’s Macintosh Computers. Thunderbolt wil be coming to PC’s later on this year but in response AMD has created their own peripheral called “lightning bolt.” This is funny because it is an exact copy of Thunderbolt including the name which just changes Thunder to Lightning.
Both systems do pretty much the same thing connecting hard drives,displays, blue-ray player, and more through a high-speed port on the desktop or notebook. Intel has proven to be faster with Thunderbolt but AMD has shown a lower price point. ThunderBolt has also had a head start on the market while Lightning Bolt is not even out yet. I can’t wait to see whats to come of another battle between AMD and Intel.
