Now, Intel makes something important for USB-C and Thunderbolt 3


One step closer to "one contact to all" future.

USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 will be two important concepts in the future. To get it very short, USB-C is the actual connector while Thunderbolt 3 is the technology to be pushed through it. Thunderbolt 3 was actually supposed to replace the traditional USB connector, but in 2015, Intel, which is behind technology, announced that Thunderbolt 3 would use the same connector as USB-C.

One step closer to "one contact to all" future.

USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 will be two important concepts in the future. To get it very short, USB-C is the actual connector while Thunderbolt 3 is the technology to be pushed through it. Thunderbolt 3 was actually supposed to replace the traditional USB connector, but in 2015, Intel, which is behind technology, announced that Thunderbolt 3 would use the same connector as USB-C.

Thunderbolt 3 is designed to replace all the connectors on your PC and supports standards such as PCIe 3.0, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2.

The new MacBook Pro has four of them.

Built into the Intel chips
Last year's Intel advertising is very important for the spread of Thunderbolt 3 and the desire for one contact for everything. The company revealed that in future technology will be incorporated into the pieces:

"All the connectors on a PC can be the same - all connectors can charge the system and connect to Thunderbolt devices, monitors and billions of USB devices," said Intel, adding that both space and power can be saved by removing the component that is needed For Thunderbolt 3.

Royalty-free
In addition, the technology is available in a royalty-free license, which allows AMD and other competitors to become more keen on creating Thunderbolt-compatible processors.

Intel also revealed that they are working closely with Microsoft to increase Thunderbolt 3 support in Windows 10.
