Thunderbolt Is Coming To Windows In 2012

When Apple introduced Thunderbolt earlier this year, PC owners were left out of the high-speed data transfer party, the new I/O technology being an Apple exclusive. But now, with Thuderbolt running on both Mac and PCs — at double the throughput of the latest USB iteration — is there room left in the world for USB 3.0? [Intel]
