    HP Thunderbolt 2 PCIe card?

    So I think that I'll be abandoning the HP card. Asus now has a thunderbolt 2 card that actually has 2 t-bolt ports as well. At the moment it looks like it's only compatible with specific asus boards that have a thunderbolt header on the board. But that's not all bad. I'm looking at the asus...

    Mac Pro x79 and Thunderbolt?

    I work in the film industry and I'd like thunderbolt on a lga2011 board for a couple of reasons: 1) I would like a board small enough that I can build it in to a portable case (pelican). 2) That means that I likely will only have about 4 full size PCIe slots and if I want to be transcoding...
