It's interesting to me that many features of Thunderbolt are already present in Displayport 1.2 announced last year:

- USB support
- Ethernet Support
- Audio channel
- 21.6Gbps total bandwidth

Add the PCIE protocol and we have Thunderbolt(?) I wonder if this was the original plan or a fallback because the optical technology wasn't going to be viable in the near future?
