If fast data transfer speeds are important to you, you’ll want to take advantage of thunderbolt technology. Thunderbolt 3 is the latest and fastest peripheral connection type made to keep up with your creative lifestyle. Created by Intel in 2011, it’s doubled the data transfer speeds than traditional USB connection types.
Thunderbolt technology offers many benefits including the ability to connect to multiple displays, hard drives like the G technology hard drive, all while it charges your laptop. You can even connect Thunderbolt to USB3 devices. Take a look to see if you need to make the switch from USB3 to Thunderbolt.
Faster Data Transfer Speeds
Thunderbolt 3 has a data transfer speed of 40 Gbps, far better speeds than USB types. USB 3.1 has a rate of 10 Gbps and USB 3.0 tops out at 5 Gbps. Thunderbolt 3 stepped up its speed from it previous iteration (20 Gbps). These fast data transfer speeds translate into a faster laptop experience. Need to transfer data files onto your external hard drive? With a Thunderbolt hard drive, you can transfer faster than ever before.
Thunderbolt 3 ports also support USB Type-C 3.1 ports and Type-C’s connector. That means that you can connect your old USB cables to any Thunderbolt port. Some devices, however, may not support this connectivity. While you can use USB 3 in Thunderbolt ports, not all USB Type-C ports will support Thunderbolt 3.
Connect Two 4K Monitors At Once
If you need to transmit video with just one wire, then Thunderbolt 3 is for you. A Thunderbolt 3 connection can transmit to two 4K screens at 60 Hz (with a Thunderbolt dock). You can also connect two computers with a single cable with an astounding 10 Gb Ethernet connection giving you blazing fast transfer speeds.
Charge Your Laptop
Is your laptop battery always dying on you? Thunderbolt 3 ports are able to send or receive up to 100 watts of power. However, if you own a high-performance laptop for gaming or video editing, you’ll need more watts to charge your laptop.
