USB 4 vs Thunderbolt 4 vs Thunderbolt 3 cables
I think I am getting slow connection speeds on a Thunderbolt 4 host?
1500 MiB/s Host to Device
1700 MiB/s Device to Host
56 Gib/s Device to Device
I am not sure, but I belive my cable might be the reason?
Looking at cables I see I can choose between:
Thunderbolt 3 - 40GBPS
Thunderbolt 4 - 40GBPS (with certification)
USB 4.0 - 40GBPS (with certification)
USB 4.0 seems to be the cheapest.
Are there any pros or cons to choosing either cable technologies?
Any assistance provided would be greatly appreciated.
Thunderbolt 4 is essentially Thunderbolt 3 but with all the maximum possible throughput / features guaranteed.
USB 4 is like Thunderbolt 3 in the sense that it has an optional feature set depending on how it is integrated by the manufacturer.
I would recommend getting an Intel Certified Thunderbolt 4 cable, which guarantees all the maximum specifications of all these cables.
