Thunderbolt 4


Recommended Posts

Most promising technology for me in CES 2021 were the Thunderbolt 4 items.


High end laptops now coming with TB4 ports, two typically.


TB4 itself looks a lot more flexible, apart from the speed boost.

- new Maple Ridge silicon likely to appear on Ryzen/Threadripper motherboards

- more ports e.g. OWC's Thunderbolt 4 dock makes up for new laptops' lack of ports (msn.com)


Time to ditch my 10 year old SAMSUNG laptop?

Worth pointing out that TB3 was fully implemented on Apple stuff ... leaving Windows devices as poor relations ...

... but TB4 is fully capable on Windows now ... according to the literature at least.

I like the new HP Spectre 14 ...

... but only basic colours in the UK at present ... and no Windows 10 Pro.

(I have the answer for the latter with the PCWorld offer I put up a few months ago q.v.).

Maybe March I'm told.

HP’s new Spectre x360 14 laptop has a 3:2 aspect ratio plus a Thunderbolt 4 port hiding in the corner - The Verge
