Why You Need Thunderbolt 3: Faster Than The Fastest Data Transfer

A single port. A universe of possibilities.There are so many reasons why you should switch to Thunderbolt 3, the fastest port in the market today!
Here are eight things you need to know about Thunderbolt 3.

Fastest Ever
With a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps, it is 2x faster than Thunderbolt 2, 4x quicker than the USB 3.1 and 8x speedier than the USB 3.0. This means that connecting a graphics amplifier can turn your computer into a gaming rig since you get speeds as if it were directly connected to the motherboard. This means that if you couple thunderbolt with an SSD, you get the fastest transfers available.

Employs USB Type-C Connectors
Thunderbolts use USB Type-C 3.1 ports. They support USB Type-C’s thin, reversible connectors and any Type-C devices can be connected to it as they act as an alternative for USB. However the reverse is not true since all USB Type-C ports don’t support Thunderbolt 3. Thunderbolt’s logo, a tiny lightning-bolt logo visible on the plugs of a wire or near the connector on a laptop or peripheral allows us to easily differentiate between a USB Type- C and Thunderbolt port even though they aren’t mandatory.

Connects to Two 4K Monitors at Once
You can connect to two 4K monitors or one 5K monitor (at 60 Hz) or couple one 4K monitor at 120 Hz. Connect from a Thunderbolt 3 to a single monitor using Thunderbolt-to-Display port cable. You need Thunderbolt docks if you wish to connect to more than one monitor.

Peer-to-Peer Networking
Connect PC’s together using Thunderbolt 3 ports and get a 10 Gb Ethernet connection. With a 10x speed boost, copying a large file to/ from your friends’ laptop takes place within minutes.

Power up your laptop
Since they are equipped with the USB Power Delivery Standard, Thunderbolt 3 ports can send or receive 100 watts of power. This means that Thunderbolt 3 port alone can charge your laptops. They can also deliver 15 Watts of electricity to bus-powered devices such as external drives, cameras, portable monitors and can even be used to charge phones.

Daisy chain up to 6 devices
A daisy chain is a line of many devices connected from first to the last through different wires. With Thunderbolt cables, you can daisy chain up to 6 distinct computers or peripherals. This means that if the devices in the middle have 2 ports, one in and one out, you can connect multiple devices together and communicate along the line.
