Intel is already putting its sights beyond USB 3.0 with Light Peak transfer technology and Intels senior fellow Kevin Kahn believes it will have what it takes to tip USB 3.0 over and take its place as the new widely adopted peripheral standard of the future.

Light Peak is capable of a whopping 10Gbps, but was first intended to be released as a link for separate standards. However, Kahn pointed out at IDF in Beijing the other day all of the benfits and reasons behind why it has the potential to take over from USB 3.0.

 

Te technology is said to become available by late this year to component makers, and shipping early next, giving it more support in taking over the reins before USB 3.0 even has a chance to fully embed itself in the mainstream market.
