Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Intel’s Thunderbolt standard  - PCSTATS.com Intel’s Thunderbolt standard
Sat, Jul 22 2017 | 9:02AM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

With the introduction of Intel’s Thunderbolt standard in 2011, there was a hope that we would finally achieve external graphics nirvana. A modern, Intel-backed protocol promising PCIe x4 speeds (PCIe 2.0 at that point) sounded like it would be ideal for connecting GPUs to notebooks, and in some ways it was. Once again the external graphics communities managed to get it to work through the use of enclosures meant to connect other non-GPU PCIe devices such as RAID and video capture cards to systems. However, software support was still a limiting factor. You were required to use an external monitor to display your video, and it still felt like you were just riding the line between usability and a total hack. It felt like we were never going to get true universal support for external GPUs on notebooks.
