Intel adopts 40Gb per SECOND USB-C plug for Thunderbolt 3.0

DesktopGuy

I keep re-testing Thunderbolt bridging for IP networking.

Tested again this weekend using OS X 10.10.3.

Whilst I can get speeds as high as 500MB/s between a MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina,

it fluctuates wildly, getting as low as 50Mb/s.

It would be awesome if I could finally replace 10Gb ethernet and 8Gb Fibre for basic storage networks.

Looks like a dream that will never be realised.
