Intel announces Thunderbolt 4 Specification, One USB-C rule all

Intel announces the Thunderbolt 4 specification not long ago at CES 2020 with little detail, however a touch of burrowing uncovered that the new interface isn’t quicker than the current Thunderbolt 3. With speeds up to 40Gb/s, Thunderbolt 4 keeps up a similar greatest speed rating as its ancestor and doesn’t empower new highlights.

Be that as it may, the new detail expects merchants to empower the entirety of the discretionary highlights incorporated with Thunderbolt 3, similar to the capacity to hit the 40Gb/s information throughput necessities and bolster two 4K showcases or one 8K show, so as to fit the bill for Thunderbolt 4 affirmation.

Thunderbolt 4 specification cablings will come in 0.2m, 0.8m, and 2m lengths, with plans for 5 to 50m cabling later on.
