Thunderbolt is certainly taking its sweet time catching on, but Intel isn't about to give up yet. In 2012 the company will be rolling out Cactus Ridge, a replacement for it's current Light Ridge and Eagle Ridge solutions. There will be two versions: a quad Thunderbolt channel, dual DisplayPort model (replacing the similarly speced Light Ridge); and a dual T-bolt, single DisplayPort edition (taking over for Eagle Ridge). Exactly when they'll land next year or how much it'll cost OEMs to shoehorn the controllers into their machines is still a mystery, but we're holding out hope that this time next year the 10Gbps jacks will be in every Dell, Acer and Apple.
