Gigabyte Reveal Thunderbolt 2 Ready Motherboards At IDF 2013

Intel’s Thunderbolt 2 standard is set to be implemented on a pair of Gigabyte motherboards in the near future. Legit Reviews spotted the Gigabyte Z87X-UD5 TH (above) and the Z87X-UD7 TH (below) motherboards at IDF 2013. Both motherboards implemented the newest version of Thunderbolt which is Thunderbolt 2.0 that has 20 gbps of bandwidth compared to 10 gbps of bandwidth on the first generation. Intel’s Thunderbolt 2 will be backwards compatible with the first generation.

The two motherboards to get these new Thunderbolt ports are both existing current Gigabyte motherboards for the LGA 1150 Z87 platform. Both motherboards get a pair of Thunderbolt 2 ports which are capable of daisy chaining multiple monitors and have integrated DisplayPort 1.2 video outputs that can be used simultaneously with a Thunderbolt storage device. Thunderbolt 2 is physically identical but adds channel aggregation to combine the previously two separate 10 gbps channels in Thunderbolt 1.
