Intel has unveiled the Thunderbolt 3, its third-generation Thunderbolt interface. This device eschews the classic Mini DisplayPort connector in favor of a USB-C format. In addition to offer greater versatility when connecting peripheral devices, the Thunderbolt 3 also offers increased bandwidth at 40 Gbps. It is capable of connecting as well as simultaneously powering up your devices.
The Thunderbolt 3 will come with a reversible connector. It is capable of delivering two 4K displays that run at 60 Hz and can charge your device with up to 100 Watts of power transfer. By incorporating support for DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.1, existing USB-C cables can also be accommodated.
With its combination of speedier connectivity, versatility and charging capability, the Thunderbolt 3 is set to revolutionize the way we stay connected.
