In a private briefing on the eve of Intel’s Developers Forum, Lucid allowed the guys from LaptopMag to go hands-on with a prototype Thunderbolt graphics card / enclosure. They are targeting this device towards laptop and ultrabook users. It will allow you to install a discrete graphics card of your choice in the enclosure and use it via the 10GB/s Thunderbolt connection on your ultrabook or laptop. Check out the video below to see it in action.
Yesterday at the Intel Developer Forum 2012 OCZ was quietly giving a sneek peek at their new Vector solid state drive. The Vector drive is built on Indilinx’s latest Barefoot 3 controller. This controller is completely built from the ground up by Indilinx (the Barefoot 2 used Marvell technology). Maybe this new controller will fix the single thread issue we saw with drives based on the Barefoot 2 controller. The Vector drive also sports 2x nm MLC NAND, and a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface.
