Thunderbolt 3 features and support
Thunderbolt 3 technology provides the fastest data and high-end video transfers over a single, versatile connector. While previous generations of Thunderbolt technology offered impressive transfer rates up to 20Gb/s bi-directional, Thunderbolt 3 doubles the potential up to 40Gb/s bi-directional when connected to other Thunderbolt 3 devices. Further, Thunderbolt 3 gives priority to the video stream, apportioning the required bandwidth for playback. This is a critical advantage when working with high-end video and 3D graphics.
Thunderbolt 3 uses a USB-C connector specially labeled with a thunderbolt icon. Since Thunderbolt 3 is protocol agnostic, it supports connections from the following interfaces:
Non-Thunderbolt 3 devices that feature USB-C ports can be connected to the Thunderbolt 3 port to terminate a daisy chain and, if compatible, to take advantage of the power delivery option for charging batteries.
