Support for Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort and USB-C
Whether you are in the market for a new laptop or looking for the best docking station for your peripherals, you may be wondering whether you should go with Thunderbolt or USB-C. Both can provide power, data, and video over a single connection. However, they do have a few differences.
Thunderbolt has two main versions, Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4. The first is backward compatible with Thunderbolt 2. This means that accessories and PCs compatible with Thunderbolt 3 will work with Thunderbolt 4 computers. However, if you purchase a PC compatible with Thunderbolt 3, you may want to buy an adapter.
Both Thunderbolt versions are capable of 40Gbps data transfer. These speeds are twice as fast as USB 3.0. You can daisy chain up to six devices with two Thunderbolt ports. This allows you to connect a 4K monitor, a 5K monitor, and an 8K monitor to your PC. You may want to use multiple ports if you have more than six devices.
