A few months ago, the new USB 4 standard was announced. The updated interface will double the bandwidth and achieve an incredible data transfer rate of 40 Gbit / s. In addition, using the USB-C connector you can very quickly charge your gadget at a power of 100 watts.
Work on the development of specifications are underway. The readiness of the interface, which will work on Thunderbolt 3, is estimated at 70 percent, and therefore the commercial release should take place as early as next year.
One of the advantages of the fourth generation interface will be the ability to work with 5K monitors or with two 4K monitors in conjunction.
