The world first compatible USB4 | Thunderbolt 4 data cable released: 40Gbps bandwidth.

On January 19, according to media reports, Chinese accessories manufacturer ORICO launched the world’s first data cable compatible with both USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 protocols.

 

The world first compatible USB4 | Thunderbolt 4 data cable released: 40Gbps bandwidth.

 

According to the report, the data cable is certified by Intel and can provide 40Gbps transmission speed and DisplayPort1.4 pass-through.

At the same time, it also supports 8K60Hz video transmission and 100W USB PD power supply.

The position of the data cable connector adopts a solid alloy shell, and the entire cable body is braided with nylon, which can withstand up to 10,000 times of bending without damage, and is extremely durable.

 

The length of the data cable is available in three sizes of 30cm, 80cm and 2m, and the prices are 20 US dollars, 27 US dollars and 57 US dollars.

 

Information about USB4


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

USB4 is a USB system specified in the USB4 specification which was released in version 1.0 on 29 August 2019 by USB Implementers Forum.[1]

 

In contrast to prior USB protocol standards, USB4 requires USB-C connectors, and for power delivery, it requires support of USB PD. In contrast to USB 3.2, it allows tunneling of DisplayPort and PCI Express.

The architecture defines a method to share a single high-speed link with multiple end-device types dynamically that best serves the transfer of data by type and application.

USB4 products must support 20 Gbit/s throughput and can support 40 Gbit/s throughput, but due to tunneling even nominal 20 Gbit/s can result in higher effective data rates in USB4, compared to USB 3.2, when sending mixed data.

 

The USB4 specification is based on the Thunderbolt 3 protocol specification.[2]

Support of interoperability with Thunderbolt 3 products is optional for USB4 hosts and USB4 peripheral devices, and is required for USB4 hubs on their downward facing ports and for USB4-based docks on their downward and upward facing ports.

On the other hand, support for USB4 is required in Thunderbolt 4.[3]
