Intel, as the developer of the Thunderbolt connector, has recently announced the latest technology from Thunderbolt, which will be the successor of Thunderbolt 3, named Thunderbolt 4.
Intel claims that this latest Thunderbolt connector delivers much higher performance than the previous generation. Intel also uses the USB4 specification in this technology.
Thunderbolt 4 is known to have the ability to connect so that it can support two screens with 4K resolution at once and also display content with 8K resolution smoothly.
“The arrival of Thunderbolt 4 proves that Intel is advancing the PC ecosystem towards truly universal solutions,” said Intel’s General Manager Client Connectivity division, Jason Ziller.
It is known that Thunderbolt 4 also presents PCIe data at 32Gbps and storage speeds of up to 3,000 MBps. Even at this time, Thunderbolt 4 technology already supports cables with lengths of up to 2 meters.
What makes it even more interesting is that devices with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity can still be used with Thunderbolt 4. This makes it unnecessary for users to upgrade to devices that support that connection.
