The future computer port is here. Through one simple cable, 40Gpbs Thunderbolt™ 3 offers blazing-fast, high-bandwidth PCIe data, USB 3.1, and 5K video support—performance optimized for multi-slot PCIe card support with Echo™ Express expansion systems and 10GbE networking connections through Twin 10G™ network adapters. Sonnet—The Thunderbolt 3 company.
With increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, and with specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, the deployment of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking has skyrocketed. This high-speed wired networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the most common wired network connection included with most computers today, and yet, most computers aren’t equipped to get you connected.
