How about Apple Thunderbolt 3 Pro 2 meters cable?

Recently, Apple’s official website put a Thunderbolt 3 cable that was only available on the Pro Display XDR display before.

It seems that this cable is a passive thunderbolt 3 cable for it can transfer USB 3.1 gen2 data up to 10Gbps.

Has anyone bought this cable? Could you please tell me more about this cable, such as the passive/active property and the cable build quality (Pictures).

And I am wondering why this cable has a "PRO" suffix in its name.

Thanks!

I will finish my desktop PC in a few months. I only need one motherboard now. ASUS X299 Deluxe II and Gigabyte X299X Aorus master are the target motherboards.

Thunderbolt 3 passive and 2m? Is that possible? I don't think so. I think the price is high because it has active technology that handles not only Thunderbolt but also USB-C (USB and DisplayPort) (also 100W PD is not cheap).

@littlenewton, if you do review it, you need to test all the link rates listed at            #90           with USB devices and DisplayPort devices (not just Thunderbolt devices). The AGDCDiagnose command will tell you DisplayPort link rate for Thunderbolt and USB-C displays. I think changing the resolution will change the DisplayPort link rate - use SwitchResX to create custom timings if necessary (don't use scaled resolutions because they use the max display timing).

@joevt, Thank you very much, but I did not received these cables yet. I'm not a very professional hardware reviewer, but I will try to learn that! Thanks for your info!
