Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C: the 40 Gbps + 100W Answer

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

As the computer, tablet and smartphone industries move toward adoption of the new USB Type-C connector, a new version of Thunderbolt is quickly approaching. With speeds topping 40 gigabits per second, Thunderbolt 3 promises to provide another solution to unify various display, docking, power, storage and network protocols currently available under the USB Type-C standard, with data transmission speeds beyond that of USB Type-C as well as other protocols like DisplayPort and PCI Express.

USB and Thunderbolt have been widely used to connect various peripheral devices providing storage, display, and recently, power capabilities though distinct ports on devices. And until now, these ports have been separate. When work by Intel began on the Thunderbolt 3 interface, the port was going to continue to be unique until standards began to emerge for USB Type-C.
