Hello together,

 does anyone know, if the Enclosures do work with the 0,8m Thunderbolt 3 Cable from Apple?

https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MQ4H2AM/A/thunderbolt-3-usb%E2%80%91c-cable-08-m

We all know that 1m or more need active cable, but this one even it's not said if active or passive.

Who has experience with it?

It is passive and is great. A little thick and inflexible but I guess that is par for the course.

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

The important question is: Can it do the complete TB3 protocol? Because 1m passive cables surely are not able.

Do you have it running with an eGPU?

@oliverb I use it as a daily driver and it works flawlessly.

Thank you. I have bought it and it works (even though it's said passive cables over 50cm don't work).
I made some research and postet it here:
