Thunderbolt™ 3 technology offers a fast and simple level of connection and consistency for work or home, bringing the speed and versatility of Thunderbolt™ to USB-C. Increase productivity by linking multiple devices through a single, compact port or add a little more power to your gaming with lightning-fast transfers. Paired with 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors or 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, Thunderbolt™ 3 technology optimizes PC performance.
Thunderbolt™ 3 technology is 8x faster than USB 3.0 and provides 4x more video bandwidth than HDMI 1.41, while also supplying power, helping users work and play more efficiently. Applications and power run over a single cable that is thin enough to fit into an ultra-light PC.
Expand your capabilities while reducing cables with the simplicity of a single Thunderbolt™ 3 port paired with the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processor. Now, just one compact port can enable lightning-fast data transfer, support two 4K UHD 60 Hz displays2, and even quick laptop charging. It’s the most advanced, efficient, and versatile single-docking solution available.
Incredible data transfer rates for high-powered external graphics cards, deliver exciting potential for multi-streaming HD and 4K UHD video and also allow you to enjoy the latest games as they were intended. Orchestrate desktop-level performance from a lightweight laptop, experience higher frame rates and improve visual quality with an unprecedented speed of 40Gbps.
Business users can simplify connecting to a variety of devices, monitors and peripherals while receiving up to 100-watt charging power by using a Thunderbolt™ 3 docking station powered by the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor.
Increase employee productivity with lightning-fast transfer speeds. Users can move massive CAD files, data sets and videos in a matter of seconds. And because Thunderbolt™ 3 technology is bi-directional, workstations can transfer and display both data and 4K UHD video simultaneously3 without any loss to bandwidth.
With Thunderbolt™ Networking, you can migrate, share and transfer data, files and resources from one Thunderbolt™ device to another with a single Thunderbolt™ cable, establishing a connection that emulates Ethernet for fast, convenient transitions.
