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 Its (also developed in Israel, like its predecessors), with the highlight (along with further doubling the data traffic volume to 40 gigabits per second) is the adoption of the physical form of the Type C connection of the big competitor - theUSB Popular, open and free.
It means quite simple and quite positive. From now on,Thunderbolt 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 Thunderbolt 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 controller.Thunderbolt (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 USB "Normal" with a maximum speed of 10 GB per second or 5 GB per second (according to the wired controller standard - 3.1 or 3.0).
In any case, each of the new Type C connections will support both video transfer based on the DisplayPort protocol, both information transfer and power transmission of up to 100 watts. There is no doubt that this is a welcome improvement, which in the long run will allow us to move to one unified and universal type of connection instead of all the wide variety that is in our devices at the moment - we can only hope that Intel will continue to work to reduce the connection.Thunderbolt 3 to the people, with the help of cheaper controllers that will reach a wider range of products, customized equipment with better availability and perhaps also by making the support built into its future chipsets.
Emulation of Ethernet connection at 10Gbps speed and support In external graphic cards - They too are now an official part of the Thunderbolt capabilities
