Now twice as fast
If you’re an active photographer or content creator, or love high-quality images from your PC to your monitor, then you probably know what Thunderbolt is, but it’s useful for even more tasks. Thunderbolt is a high-speed I/O technology developed by Intel. It combines the features of several other technologies, including USB, DisplayPort, and PCIe, into a single connector and cable.
This allows you to connect multiple devices to your computer using a single port, such as the popular Type-C port. Now Intel has announced Thunderbolt 5, the next generation of its high-speed connectivity standard.
Thunderbolt 5 provides 80 Gbps of bidirectional throughput, which is double that of Thunderbolt 4. It also supports Bandwidth Boost, which can temporarily increase throughput up to 120 Gbps for video-intensive applications. In addition to fast speeds, Thunderbolt 5 doubles PCI Express data throughput for fast storage and external graphics. The technology is also energy efficient and can deliver up to 240 watts of power, which is enough to charge a laptop or power an external graphics card.
Thunderbolt 5 is designed to meet the needs of content creators, gamers and professionals who work with large files and require high-quality images and low latency.
