    i don't think it's "dead" per say, intel will probably release an updated version to let the end user choose either to lock compatibility or enable it and "risk it"...

    Stagnation means decline! If developers want to keep everyone happy that wants to keep using their legacy devices we'd probably still be using serial and parallel ports. :)
    There are always options to keep using old(er) devices. You could buy an expansion card that supports the older version or maybe the original manufacturers can write an updated driver that will somehow support the newer hardware?
    But IMO clinging on to legacy hardware should never get in the way of developing new, faster, better and more secure versions.

    "stagnation" means a loss of revenue...most features aren't used by most users. its always a money grab. vinyl,8-track,cassette. I know this movie i lived it. every upgrade is not about the user, its about money. sell you the same shit with a new name or color or celebrity endosement. the fish keep going for the worm, they never learn.....

    Asus made a thunderbolt firmware downgrade tool:
    Thunderbolt Downgrade NVM31 Solution for Thunderbolt 2 devices

    By the way I don't see the problem with making thunderbolt 3 devices. RME is a bunch of lying scumbags for defending going from thunderbolt to USB. It was all about the cost nothing else. Everybody knows PCIe and thunderbolt is much better for low latency and stability than USB. By the way the USB devices from both RME and Presonus sucks compare to their thunderbolt devices. And still they dare to say it an upgrade.

    Yeah, even being on Apple silicon, one of the interfaces I am thinking about buying is available both in thunderbolt and usb, and I know TB is probably better for what "I" am doing, I'm still on the fence tbh...

    dumb and dumber....
    until the Thunderbolt lighting FRIES his Froggy Jello Pudin pop brain... Sorry

    I don't think you understand issue. Thunderbolt 2 works on thunderbolt 4 if the firmware is 31 or lower. Before calling someone a moron maybe understand the problem

    yes, technology evolves as it should.
    yes, it's a cash grab. we live in a post-capitalist hell, remember?
    and yes, planned obsolescence sucks a huge smegma-covered donkey penis.

    Also the post and himself starts by these words

    History repeats itself...

    Ounce you repeat this phrase just more time in your minds
    You understand that you have to learn something otherwise you'll be repeating the error over again and again endelessy...

    Making you dumber than dumb

    we live where we choose to live, if you sucumb to marketing, you will get recruited to post capitalist hell, which is just word spaghetti for a reality no one chooses who considers taking a fork in the road. our life is a net result of our choices, try to make wise ones.

    most folks are "consumers" by choice, I prefer to be a citizen and make choices that help me stay on that path. if you are in a poker game and don't know who the sucker is, its probably you.

    it all gets down to electricty. Current always takes the path of least resistance. try to resist.

    I'm so glad I found this thread.
    I was planning on getting a new PC when the new Ryzen and USB4 board comes out.
    But it looks like what I need is to change ships.:suicide:

    sorry King, when someone says something like "post-capitalist hell" it sounds like they are spewing programming rather than thoughtful discourse. I enjoy dissing the man as much as the next prole, but lets avoid cliche's and try to find the answer together. we are all on the same side, though many have no clue why.. at least you are questioning, and thats a good beginning..

    ps. daddys gun taste like pennies.....

    all roads lead to disillusionment... just decide how much money you want to blow and how much disappointment you can stand and get in line for that "Next Upgrade"... me i only use 2nd hand computers, I let somebody else take that hit for the team.

    you'll figure it out. .. just keep doing the same thing and getting the same results..

    at some point it should become obvious newer is just an excuse to be experimented on by developers of hardware and software.
    I'm not anti-computer, I probably have owned or installed a thousand of them. Its just that at some point one notices a pattern...
