Thunderbolt™ 4 Preview – The Truly Universal Cable Connectivity Solution
One of the most important things we focused on was making sure that Thunderbolt™ 4 computers and cables are a fully compatible extension to existing Thunderbolt™ 3 accessories and cables so you can still take advantage of the gear you have now.
Thunderbolt™ is a high-speed protocol that can dynamically adjust data and video bandwidth depending on the device and/or application. It is now the basis of the USB4 protocol specification.
Thunderbolt™ 4 and USB 4 products will use the same underlying protocol specification to improve compatibility for USB-C based products.
