Faster USB performance

With two host controller chipsets, shared across two ports instead of four, this 4-port Thunderbolt 3 to USB 3.1 adapter dedicates up to 10Gbps for each set of two USB ports. It reduces performance bottlenecks and doubles your total available bandwidth to 20Gbps.

Increase productivity with Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is the fastest connection available. By avoiding performance bottlenecks, you can accomplish more in the same amount of time. With 40Gbps of throughput and support for other high-performance PCIe cards, you can swap the card in and out, to add the peripherals you need connected to a Thunderbolt 3 desktop or laptop computer. 

Install and assemble with ease

Requiring only a Phillips type screwdriver, this Thunderbolt 3 to  PCIe USB 3.1 adapter can be assembled and connected in minutes.

 

The TB31PCIEX16 and PEXUSB314A2V are backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty.
