The new USB Type-C is an upgrade in the ports which can charge your laptop, deliver 4K video, and transfer loads of USB data all over a single cable and more importantly all at the same time. Google has already announced that the Android phones will soon be equipped with Type- ports. What, you want more!! Ok. Check this out.
Intel has come up with an enhanced version of Type -C, Intel Thunderbolt 3. The features of this new upgrade port are as lightning as its name. As if charging, transferring and delivering a 4K video was not enough, Intel Thunderbolt 3 can supplement the power of a relatively weak laptop with an external graphics card, charge your laptop, drive two 4K monitors, and power your USB devices all at the same time.
Here’s a shiny Intel Thunderbolt 3 box that has three USB 3.0 ports, two HDMI ports, ethernet, external radio and two display ports. That’s not all. The Thunderbolt 3 box also has an additional Type-C port if you might feel the need, and an external AMD Radeon R9 M385 graphics chip inside. The sleek Intel Thunderbolt 3 also allows you to connect your laptop to an even heavier external graphics card like a full-size AMD R9 200 series.
I bet Intel would have satisfied your appetite with its Thunderbolt 3 set by now. But, don’t get overwhelmed just yet. These were just the Inventec reference designs. Although, you can expect Intel Thunderbolt 3 sets in the markets by this year’s end.
