Intel tomorrow is said to be revealing some of the final details of its Light Peak technology as it makes its way into the first wave of consumer and business gadgetry.

Join us at 10 a.m. PT tomorrow for live coverage. I'll be on the scene with CNET senior associate technology editor Dong Ngo to bring you the news as it happens with text and photos. You can keep up with both by coming back to this page then and following along in the Cover it Live module at the bottom of the post.

According to a CNET source, Intel will be unveiling some of the final details of Light Peak, a transmission technology designed by Intel that promises to bring 10-gigabit-per-second speeds for data transfers to and from external devices, besting recently introduced solutions like USB 3.0. Intel's broader vision is to have it replace the myriad specialty ports on laptops and desktop machines with one that can do just about everything, while scaling its bandwidth potential to support future computing needs.

The technology is expected to make an appearance in a refresh to Apple's MacBook range, which CNET has been told could come shortly after Intel's announcement.

Besides the morning event, Intel will also be offering demonstrations of what's being announced at its campus in Santa Clara, Calif. CNET will also be on the scene for that, with follow-up coverage later in the day.
