Thunderbolt 3: Optimising Speed, Performance And Power

News Image
With laptops and desktops always evolving, PC manufacturers face many on-going challenges – from I/O ports that no longer fit into sleek, slimline notebooks, to the headache of ever-demanding data access and transfer rates. Something we are all familiar with!

Manufacturers and consumers alike are excited about embracing the latest version of Thunderbolt. If you're always on the lookout for new technologies to enhance performance and offer greater versatility, the Thunderbolt 3 solution offers just this and also takes advantage of easy integration with the USB-C interface. The USB Type-C connector – familiar to the new MacBook Pro – is also showing up on new ultrabooks and notebooks. This latest advancement brings the power of Thunderbolt to USB-C, to create one compact port that does it all.

Making your world faster and simpler
Thunderbolt 3 is proving to be a game-changer for connectivity and performance. For the first time, a single port can connect to Thunderbolt devices, all types of display and billions of USB devices.
Developed to deliver super-fast data access and optimal bandwidth within a single cable, this state-of-the-art port transfers data at speeds of up to 40 GBPS, delivering the fastest dock, display or device connection possible – including peer-to-peer networking. It supports two 4K displays, or one 5K display, for the perfect high-resolution photo and video editing, as well as offering leading-edge technology to deliver power (up to 100W) in both directions, allowing you to charge a device – or be charged by one.

What you'll gain
Whether you're a small or large business, creative designer, gaming enthusiast, or you simply want to have a high performing notebook – Thunderbolt 3 offers the greatest speed connectivity for work or play. Its ability to drive big data, accelerate data transfer, beef up your laptop or daisy chain to other devices means that Thunderbolt 3 offers all the power and versatility you could possibly need.
