Hello everyone,
I'm using the stock cable of my razer core x, but now I should make some changes to my workstation and I need a longer tb3 cable.
1 meter long would be fine, but at least in Italy, 1 meter actives are not found. Perhaps only the apple, which is 40gbps, 100w but passive.
I wouldn't want to miss anything in performance and I was thinking about these 2 active 2m cables.
Caldigit: http://shop.caldigit.com/eu/Adapters%20And%20Cables/Cables?product_id=110
Belkin: https://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F2CD085/
Which of the 2 is better? I don't want to lose anything in performance.
I thank everyone in advance for support.

I decided to take the Belkin cable.

It arrived today.

I chose by instinct and I really think I chose well!

The cable works great and works even better than the stock included in the razer core x.

@cuppino, avoid the Caldigit thunderbolt cables they break after a few uses. It’s like the they are made of glass.

 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
