From simple charging to high-performance tasks requiring 4K video, external graphics, faster networking, and storage, StarTech.com makes it easy to connect any USB-C device with the most comprehensive product offering.

Lockbourne, OH - November 2, 2015 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of a new line of USB-C solutions. Of note, is the highly anticipated launch of a full suite of products supporting the new Thunderbolt 3.

USB-C technology is ground breaking for all the right reasons. It is a single, conveniently reversible connector that can deliver USB (up to 10Gbps), DisplayPort 1.2, enough power to charge full-size electronics and is the same connector that carries Thunderbolt 3.

"Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C is an exciting development because it will increase productivity of creative professionals and enthusiasts alike," said Ellard Teeple, Chief Technical Officer at StarTech.com. "Thunderbolt 3 elevates computer performance by enabling faster storage, the highest resolution displays and faster connectivity to more peripherals. This type of performance and productivity is truly unprecedented."

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all -delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device*. StarTech.com's newest addition of USB-C and anticipated Thunderbolt 3 products aim to cut the confusion, offering a wide array of products to choose from and easing the transition into this new technology.

"We look forward to StarTech.com integrating Thunderbolt 3 into a range of cutting-edge connectivity solutions enabling enhanced convenience and maximizing functionality and performance." said Jason Ziller, Director of Thunderbolt Marketing, Intel Corporation.

Newer computers and mobile devices will have fewer port options, as device manufacturers opt for the compact and convenient USB-C port. The new USB-C products and adapters from StarTech.com will allow users to continue to use their legacy peripherals with a USB-C enabled device. StarTech.com has a comprehensive line of products that make it easy to connect any USB-C device and includes: cables, display adapters, docking stations, hubs and hard drive accessories.
