Integrated Thunderbolt 3




Intel finally did it, they integrated Thunderbolt 3 into their SoC. The 40Gpbs protocol is on track, and while some call it USB 4.0, it's still known as Thunderbolt 3 and still supports all the technologies we all know and use, such as DisplayPort and USB 3.





By integrating Thunderbolt 3, Intel aims to reduce costs to vendors. Not much has changed in regards to how the protocol or configuration is done.




However, there is one part that vendors will need to incorporate, and that's the Thunderbolt 3 retimer, which Intel said had to be developed in-house due to engineering and time constraints.




Here we get a look at the new integrated SoC structure of how they integrated Thunderbolt 3. What we see are higher performance and lower latency.
