Have you started getting used to the name and look of The USB connection is 3.1 Type C, The new and minimized connection that can not be mistaken in the direction of his connection (Hallelujah!) And reminds a bit of Apple's modern lightning connection? Well, you'd better get ready to adopt it into your computers and gadgets, because it signals to us that it's here to stay with a prestigious collaboration.

Intel has announced the The third generation של The Thunderbolt connection (Also developed in Israel, like its predecessors), with the headline (along with another doubling of the maximum data traffic volume to 40 Gbps) is the adoption of the physical form of the type C connection of the big competitor - Popular, open and free.


It means quite simple and quite positive. From now on, 3 will be physically identical to the 3.1 Type C USB connections and will actually offer backward support for them. Any USB cable and any cable New ones will match each other, with the only difference being the performance you can actually get - if the specific connection is wired to the (Alpine Ridge) and the cable will be compatible, you can enjoy the very impressive speeds of the new device and its chaining capabilities, while in another situation it will be a connection "Standard" with a maximum speed of 10 Gbps or 5 Gbps (according to the 3.1 or 3.0 wired controller standard).

The Thunderbolt controller is not yet built into any of Intel's chipset systems - and it may well cloud its adoption as a universal standard, similar to the simple USB 3 / 3.1
The Thunderbolt controller is not yet built into any of the chipset systems - and this may well hinder its adoption as a universal standard, 3 / 3.1 "Simple"

Either way, each of the new Type C connections will support both video transmission based on the DisplayPort protocol, both in transmitting information and transmitting power at up to 100 watts. There is no doubt that this is a welcome improvement, which in the long run will allow us to switch to one unified and universal connection instead of all the wide loot currently in our handsets - we can only hope that Intel will continue to work towards the reduction of the " 3 to the people, with the help of cheaper controllers to reach a wider range of products, better optimized equipment, and possibly by making support built into its future chipsets.

The presence of the 3 market is scheduled to go into high gear over the next year


Emulation of Ethernet connection at 10Gbps speed and support In external graphic cards - are also now an official part of the Thunderbolt capabilities
