Lockbourne, OH - May 6, 2016 - today launched Thunderbolt™ 3 cables - the USB-C cables that do it all. For the first time, a single cable can connect to Thunderbolt, USB, and DisplayPort devices. Thunderbolt 3 cables provide four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power. They are unrivaled for cable simplification, 4K video, single-cable docks with notebook charging, external graphics, fast storage, and Thunderbolt 10 GbE networking.
There are two types of Thunderbolt 3 USB-C cables (20Gb/s and 40Gb/s) with different cable markings. The 40Gb/s cables are available in lengths of 0.5m (TBLT34MM50CM), and the 20Gb/s cables are available in lengths of 1m and 2m (TBLT3MM1M and TBLT3MM2M, respectively). These highly anticipated cables are the first release of many more Thunderbolt 3 cables and products from StarTech.com.
