Intel have today revealed the Thunderbolt 2, previously codenamed Falcon Ridge, the new technology offers up double the bandwidth, 4K video transfer and display, allowing for video streaming to a single 4K capable monitor or to a dual QHD monitor.

Fully backwards compatible with current Thunderbolt technology that’s available,  Jason Ziller, Marketing Director for Thunderbolt at Intel said the following about the new cable:

“By combining 20Gbs bandwidth with DisplayPort 1.2 support, Thunderbolt 2 creates an entirely new way of thinking about 4K workflows, specifically the ability to support raw 4K video transfer and data delivery concurrently,”-“And our labs aren’t stopping there, as demand for video and rich data transfer just continues to rise exponentially.”

Apart from that, there’s not much else to reveal about Thunderbolt 2 (apart from that it will launch later this year), however we will likely see and hear more  during Apple’s WWDC conference.
