The spec releases in Summer 2019, so devices won't ship until way after that. Earliest we will see this is with Ice Lake in 2020, assuming Ice Lake is on track.
It also makes it cheaper as well which will be a good thing. It may also mean intel and USB-IF have the potential to work together to further improve upon it. I hope it means we get a Thunderbolt4/USB5 sooner for double the bandwidth. I would really like to get a ultrabook/external GPU box setup going, like a XPS13 and put my 1080 into a box. Just not worth it under Thunderbolt 3 speeds not providing enough bandwidth even on a x4 connection.
