Intel’s Thunderbolt Share lets two PCs control each other via a USB cable

Why can’t you just plug a USB cable between two PCs, drag your mouse cursor between their screens, and drop files between them, as if they were a single machine? Well, you’ve been able to do that for years, but Intel may be about to supercharge this idea with Thunderbolt Share.

This is a proprietary application that Intel will license to laptop, desktop, and accessory makers to bundle with new hardware. Install it on two Thunderbolt 4 or 5 computers, connect them with a Thunderbolt cable, and you should be able to share your mouse, keyboard, displays, storage, and other USB devices; drag and drop files at Thunderbolt speed; and synchronize data between them. However, it will not allow you to share an Internet connection.

Intel says you can also mirror one PC’s screen to another at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second with low latency and no compression – and PCs can connect via a dock or monitor Thunderbolt if that is more convenient than a direct link.

This is not the case strictly require a Thunderbolt-certified computer, mind you, or even necessarily an Intel processor. “USB 4 and Thunderbolt 3 connections may work, but we don’t really guarantee it, we won’t provide support for it,” says Jason Ziller, head of Intel Thunderbolt.

But that requires the app, for which Intel will charge OEMs an additional licensing fee to exclusively supply new hardware. Having to purchase a Thunderbolt computer or Thunderbolt accessory subset limits the environments in which this could be useful! Intel says, however, that you get a second license with any Thunderbolt Share PC you buy or two with any accessory.

The app is an upsell because PC makers are interested, Ziller says, and Intel wants to thoroughly test and certify it with them “to make sure it’s a great experience.”

It’s also only for Windows at the moment: “We’re exploring other operating system opportunities, but at this time it wouldn’t work connected to a Mac.” ยป

Acer, Lenovo, MSI and Razer are the first PC partners, alongside accessory suppliers Belkin, Kensington, Plugable and Promise Technology. Some of these companies previously sold “Easy Transfer” cables designed to migrate from one computer to another; Plugable already sells a Thunderbolt cable that comes with a Bravura Easy Computer Sync app that also features drag-and-drop and remote computer control. I wonder how Thunderbolt Share will compare.
