    they wont be out for a year or 2 if they even come out. can i ask why you would even want thunderbolt at this point, there are no devices that are TB only and it will be a dead platform soon once light peak optical is out.

    the pro is the same as the extreme but internal, why not get that if you are looking at a TB card.

    the extreme is also OSX only, but that may be since there are no consumer TB windows computers.

    check the specs page, they are not the same - the extreme has 1080P50 & 1080P60 IN capabilities - the other 2 don't

    Are you sure it isnt your eyesight? Zanzabar is correct in everything he said. A Quick scan of the tech specs of each show the Pro and Extreme are EXACTLY the same except one is internal, the other is external through a crap interface
    Rig 1:
    ASUS P8Z77-V
    Intel i5 3570K @ 4.75GHz
    16GB of Team Xtreme DDR-2666 RAM (11-13-13-35-2T)
    Nvidia GTX 670 4GB SLI

    Rig 2:
    Asus Sabertooth 990FX
    AMD FX-8350 @ 5.6GHz
    16GB of Mushkin DDR-1866 RAM (8-9-8-26-1T)
    AMD 6950 with 6970 bios flash

    Yamakasi Catleap 2B overclocked to 120Hz refresh rate
    Audio-GD FUN DAC unit w/ AD797BRZ opamps
    Sennheiser PC350 headset w/ hero mod

    I'm looking @ :

    ..WAIT! I just found the problem!
    use the drop downfield & switch the Pro to the USB3.0 model - then you will see updated spec page for the Thunderbolt model - & you will see that it does 1080P50 & 60, whereas the other two (Pro & USB3) don't!

    You're probably going to just need a Mac.

    If you want TB anytime soon, get Mac.
