I knew Thunderbolt was gonna be more expensive than USB 3.0, but this price difference is insane

Even in its non-optical, crippled copper state, Thunderbolt is prohibitively expensive. USB 3.0 controllers cost just a few dollars, while Thunderbolt hardware, we’ve been told, cost no less than $90. Matrox’s new line of Thunderbolt-enabled products are $200-300 more than the eSATA or USB equivalent!
