I hate wires/mess, so the concept of Thunderbolt is right up my alley.
Carrying video of Thunderbolt is going to be kind of tricky on gaming machines. Pretty sure Thunderbolt is going to either be on the videocard itself or integrated on the mainboard. The first I highly doubt we'll see from ATI or Nvidia. Hopefully manufacturers will add Thunderbolt controllers and ports to mainboards sooner than later.
