The Titan Ridge family is designed to fit the day when we start seeing a particularly large number of supporting products Thunderbolt 3 market, in an age where the use of the standard does not require payment of royalties
We hold our fingers to the fact that this year will be the year of the truly great breakthrough of theThunderbolt 3, which even today constitute the most advanced technology for transmitting information and data in a linear manner in the home and business computer market thanks to a bandwidth of up to 40 gigabits per second. This is supposed to happen thanks to the fact that Intel will no longer require significant licensing fees from companies that will use the standard, but only a combination of the required hardware controllers - and as part of this change we get the launch of the Becker family Thunderbolt New and improved 3.
Titan Ridge controllers Will be offered in three different versions under the names JHL7540, JHL7440 and JHL7340 as a replacement for the Alpine Ridge family controllers that accompany us from the middle of 2015 with the same maximum bandwidth but with improved support for DisplayPort 1.4 (as opposed to DisplayPort 1.2 support so far) , With the ability to transfer HDR at up to 120 frames per second at 4K resolution, HDR display at 5K resolution at up to 60 frames per second, and 8K at 30 frames per second, together with adaptive synchronization technologies NVIDIA and-AMD.
The JHL7540 controller will offer two connections Thunderbolt Physical 3 Based on a single PCI-Express 3.0 × 4 artery, the JHL7340 controller will offer connection Thunderbolt Single 3 based on a single PCI-Express 3.0 × 4 artery - while the JHL7440 is a new product with a single physical connector that will offer backward support over standard USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity capabilities ) When connected to a product that does not supportThunderbolt 3.
The good news here is that there seems to be no continuity to the most basic JHL6240 controller, which offered only PCI-Express 3.0 × 2 artery support, and was a confusing factor and even a source of little disappointment for those who purchased a support device Thunderbolt 3 and only retrospectively revealed its reduced capabilities.
The Titan Ridge generation is not a big revolution for theThunderbolt 3, but is definitely another step in the right direction, and we will definitely be on the verge of seeing these controllers not only on premium computers within the reach of a few, but in more and more mainstream products that prefer the device over connections USB 3.1s are simpler, which also require a combination of dedicated controllers today.
