Thunderbolt™ ports connect computers to data, video, and power on a single cable that delivers a fast and consistent experience for work and play. A versatile I/O solution, Thunderbolt™ technology enables a 40 Gb/s connection for data and video at home, in the office, or on the go.
Thunderbolt™ 4 Technology
Building on the Thunderbolt™ 3 specification, Thunderbolt™ 4 technology improves minimum performance, expands end-to-end solution capabilities, and adds new universal cables at lengths up to 2m. Beginning in 2020, Intel® processor-based notebooks and desktops may offer integrated support for Thunderbolt™ 4 technology while docks can support up to four Thunderbolt™ 4 ports to make connecting the modern workspace more flexible and simpler than ever.
A Single Port. A Universe of Possibilities: Thunderbolt™ 3 Technology
Work and play more efficiently with Thunderbolt™ 3 technology, which is 8x faster than USB 3.0 and provides 4x more video bandwidth than HDMI 1.42. A single Thunderbolt™ 3 cable provides a 40GBs connection to displays, docks, or storage all while charging the system.
