Samsung embraces Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, developing more products that support this technology

Samsung recently introduced new products with Thunderbolt 3 support, which the company seems to be embracing and selected as a solution for the Next-Level Connectivity.

Developed by Intel, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity can transfer data, video, and audio – all via a single connection. With up to 40Gbps of high-speed data transmission, Thunderbolt 3 offers speed 8x faster than USB 3.0 and bandwidth 4x greater than HDMI 1.4, for transmitting audio and video signals.

While connected with an accessory dock with optional ports, a Thunderbolt 3 cable can connect up to six devices all at once, including PCs, displays and storage devices. This means that the cable has the capacity to transfer large files and charge a device with a maximum 100 watt (W) output simultaneously or transmit videos onto two UHD (4K) monitors.



Thunderbolt 3 has the same shape as a USB type C, which is designed to be compatible with smaller mobile devices and embedded with a USB 3.1 host controller to facilitate all USB functions.

However, it cannot be used as a Thunderbolt 3 connection on a PC that doesn’t support the connectivity event if it has the USB Type C port.

The company has known the potential of Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and launched products that support this technology including – CJ791 QLED Curved Monitor, Notebook 9 and Samsung Portable SSD X5.

Keeping all of the advantages in mind, Samsung announced that it will develop even more products that support Thunderbolt 3 in the future.
