Standard Intel misleading advertising: Make it look like its new and faster but meanwhile its not and you have to look into the fine print to determine that.

Same stuff as last year, remember Intel presenting their 28 core, 56 thread monster running at 5GHz, like this is a real product but then "forgetting" to mention the chip demoed was overclocked and chilled using an industrial chiller...

It is very important to note that USB 4.0, HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2.0 all have about the same throughput (approximately 40 gigabit). Ethernet is somewhat stuck at 10gBASE-T, 10 gigabit (because it is typically used over longer distances).

Having all this duplicate technology is a complete waste of time and just encourages dotard, foot-dragging types to hang on to obsolete technology.

I find it ironic that modems and routers are still 'stuck' with 1gBASE-T ports. Currently, the only way to attain multi-gig (in this case, only 2 gig) connectivity from a standard modem or router is the use of link aggregration via Cat cables. Sad.
