I'm real interested in the new UA apollo twin duo product they just announced, but I do not have a Mac, and I cannot seem to find a thunderbolt PC adapter anywhere. This seems insane. Does anyone know where to find one?

Google can be an amazing tool

For the record, Tbolt was developed by Intel, not Apple, and it is a combination of PCIexpress and displayport. There are already firewire to tbolt converters, which does not give you all the speed of tbolt, but it is close. Asus plans to have it on some of its motherboards soon (some of the Sandy Bridge ones, I believe)

Here is a PCIe adaptor card from Asus for about $200: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/asus-thunderbolt-Z77-H77-pcie,15925.html

I found motherboards, also the history etc. Thanks to the amazing google. But not too keen on rebuilding my still quite powerful computer for the sake of an interface, hence my search for an adapter.
Google is also amazing in that it is very repeatable, that link returns very similar results as mine did, as in none in this case.
I was hoping there would be an internal pcie thunderbolt adaptor, but none seems to exist, not even on newegg, hence my post in case anyone had more luck.
