Corning unveils optical Thunderbolt cables up to 30m long
Friday, January 4, 2013 @ 10:53am

Corning has announced a new series of ultra-long optical Thunderbolt cables. Three different lengths will be available: 10m (32.8 feet), 20m (65.6 feet), and 30m (98.4 feet). In contrast, a standard Apple-made Thunderbolt cable only measures 2m, or about 6.6 feet.

A USB 3.0 cable is in the works as well. Neither that nor the Thunderbolt cables have any official release dates, although they should be launched sometime within the first quarter of 2013. No prices have been mentioned so far.
