Intel unveils Thunderbolt Share as a new way to share displays and data between two computers

Published on

Intel is giving people who own certain Windows PCs a new way to share data and monitors. It’s called Thunderbolt Share, and as you might expect from the name, it uses Intel’s Thunderbolt port technology.

in a press release, Intel says that two computers with Thunderbolt 4 or 5 ports will be able to connect to each other via a cable, or connect to a Thunderbolt-enabled docking station, and run the new Thunderbolt Share software. Intel stated:

Creators and gamers will enjoy improved productivity with multi-computer workflows and easy peer-to-peer collaboration, and they’ll be able to share favorite peripherals. Consumers and business professionals will enjoy better ergonomics with shared displays, and they will be able to maximize work environments with multiple PCs.

Intel added that this new software feature will be able to take advantage of the high bandwidth and low latency of Thunderbolt hardware to offer smoother, uncompressed video screen sharing between two computers that can be controlled with just one mouse and keyboard.

Thunderbolt Share will also be able to transfer files between two connected computers at fast data speeds, along with the added security that a wired connection offers compared to using a wireless network connection.

Intel has already published the First version of Thunderbolt Share softwareIt will work with Windows 10 or 11 computers that meet the hardware and software requirements, keep in mind that at least one of the computers using this software must be officially named Thunderbolt Share licensed by the PC manufacturer.

Intel says the software will be included on select Windows PCs starting in the second half of 2024. Companies that will have Thunderbolt Share software support for their PCs and accessories will include Lenovo, Acer, MSI, Razer, Kensington, Belkin, Promise, Plugable, and OWC.
