Light Peak Tech Coming to Apple Macs! in First Half of 2011

“Light Peak,” a technology developed by Intel and backed by Apple is now on track to appear in both PCs and Macs products in the first half of 2011, according to an industry source.

Light Peak is significantly faster than even USB 3.0, carrying data at 10 gigabits per second in both directions simultaneously.

Light Peak eclipses USB 3.0, which’s not supported by Apple and is only supported sporadically by PC makers on certain models. The reason? Intel has yet to support USB 3.0 in the chipsets that accompany its processors.

If Apple implements Light Peak, it would be a safe bet that the company will have a lot to say about the technology–maybe with a catchy name in tow. And it would probably not be wild speculation to say that Apple would want to be the first to use it.

Below is a video on Light Peak:
