A single port with blazing fast transfer speeds
One compact port can enable lightning-fast data transfer, support two 4K UHD 60 Hz displays, and allows quick laptop charging. Thunderbolt 3 was developed to simultaneously support the fastest data and most video bandwidth available on a single cable, in addition to supplying power.
GO AT SUPERHERO SPEED
AT 40 Gb/s, IT'S THE FASTEST PORT AVAILABLE ON A COMPUTER TODAY
Intel’s Thunderbolt 3 tech with 40gbps speeds allows laptops and 2-in-1s with Thunderbolt 3 to run up to 4 PCIe lanes outside the normal confines of a laptop. Simply plug in the Thunderbolt 3 powered dock into your low powered machine, and boom! You've got yourself a gaming laptop.
Thunderbolt 3 GPU Docks
Newer Direct Attached Storage (or DAS) devices are utilizing Thunderbolt 3 to further reduce bottlenecks during data transfer, meaning not just faster transfer speeds, but other features like daisy chaining that substantially improve the user experience. With maximum transfer speeds of 40GBs, you're looking at some seriously speedy backups.
Thunderbolt 3 Storage
Thunderbolt 3 is still new, so that means you're going to need adapters to use it with your older devices. Everything from HDMI to entire laptop docks have Thunderbolt 3 adapters, so you can keep using your legacy devices alongside your Thunderbolt 3 enabled monitors and laptops.
