Dual Thunderbolt™ 4 – The fastest 40Gb/s single-wire
Powered by Intel's own Thunderbolt controller the new Thunderbolt™ 4
protocol, which is available over two USB Type-C® connectors on
the back I/O of the GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE, brings an unprecedented
single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s -- twice more than USB3.2 Gen2x2!
This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for
different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.4a* and compliant with USB4
standard, which is backwards compatible with USB 3.2 Gen1 and USB 2.0,
opening up a world of new possibilities.
