USB-C protocols

USB is a serial input/output technology for connecting peripheral devices to a computer. USB-C is the latest implementation of this standard and it provides higher bandwidth and new power management features. Further, USB-C ports that feature the thunderbolt icon include support for Thunderbolt 3 devices.

Thunderbolt 3 can attain up to 40Gb/s as opposed to USB 2.0's 480Mb/s, USB 3.0's 5Gb/s and Thunderbolt 2's 20Gb/s.
