Gregory Bryant tweeted a series of images taken at Intel’s Israel R&D Center.
One of the images showed information about the new Thunderbolt 5 standard, which was later removed from the profile, presumably due to the fact that it reveals data about the new technology.
The users managed to save the photo, so we can look at the data in more detail. Thunderbolt 5 will use the USB-C standard, but with a different bit-transmission system: from which the data transfer capacity will double from 40 Gb / s to 80 Gb / s.
It’s still unclear when Intel is going to announce the new technology, but it will take time for Apple and other manufacturers to transition to using the updated standard. Most accessories now use Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4.
