iPad 2 Thunderbolt rumors reignite: More than just raw throughput

iPad 2 Thunderbolt rumors reignite: More than just raw throughput

Apple's confirmation of Thunderbolt on the newly refreshed MacBook Pro range this morning could lend weight to speculation earlier that the new iPad 2 will have a Light Peak connection of its own. Examination of the various batches of leaked iPad 2 cases had led to suggestions that the mysterious opening on the top edge could be for a smaller-than-USB connector; that would certainly fit in with the Mini DisplayPort connection Thunderbolt has been confirmed to use.

Apple MacBook Pro 2011 official

Apple MacBook Pro 2011 official

The new Apple MacBook Pro range is official, and it's quite the star line-up. The entire 13-inch, 15-inch and 17-inch spread has been updated, with Intel's Sandy Bridge 2011 Core processors across the board. Apple has also cast out NVIDIA, replacing GeForce GPUs with AMD's Radeon graphics on the 15- and 17-inch machines. The 13-inch, meanwhile, makes do with Intel's integrated graphics alone. Perhaps most interesting is the addition of Apple's new Thunderbolt connector, based on Intel's Light Peak technology and promising up to 10Gbps data transfer speeds. Full details after the cut.

Apple Thunderbolt promises 10GBs claims alleged Apple MacBook Pro leak

Apple Thunderbolt promises 10GBs claims alleged Apple MacBook Pro leak

We're counting down the hours until Apple announces the new MacBook Pro range sometime later on today - at time of writing the store is still up, which suggests there may still be some time to go - but another shot of the new notebooks' packaging with some Apple Thunderbolt tidbits has leaked. Theo Levy managed to snap what looks like another section of Apple's online promotional material, seemingly from the same source as the side-profile MacBook Pro 15 leak yesterday, seemingly confirming the sort of speeds users can expect.

"A new type of I/O that transfers data at up to 10 GBs per second" the Apple copy supposedly reads, "Every new MacBook Pro ships with Thunderbolt so your [sic] ready to go, out of the box." The spelling error does give us pause, however - all this would be mighty easy to fake, after all - though it does fit in with what we know of the technical capabilities of Light Peak.
