To get faster Thunderbolt 3 speeds on your Thunderbolt 3 enabled Apple 15" MacBook Pro (2018) or Thunderbolt 3 Windows PC's, you can use the Hama Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.5m). By supporting Thunderbolt 3, this .5 meter cable can provide up to 40Gbps of data transfer rate when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 based device. The Hama cable also supports data transfer over the USB-C interface at USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds (up to 10Gb/s) as well as DisplayPort 1.2 and USB Power Delivery 2.0 technologies.
With the Hama Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.5m), you can connect a daisy-chain of up to six Thunderbolt 3 based devices as well as quickly move large 4K video or data files to most Thunderbolt 3 or USB Type-C enabled devices and peripherals at 1x 5K or 2x 4K resolutions. The Hama cable can also be used to supply up to 100 watts (20 volts @ 5 amps) of rapid charging power using USB Power Delivery 2.0.
The Hama Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.5m) only goes half a meter, but if you need longer passive cables like the Hama Thunderbolt 3 20Gbps USB-C Cable (1m), the total potential bandwidth will drop to 20 Gb/s.
We had picked up the Hama Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.5m) recently from a MediaMarkt retail store in Germany so let's see how it looks like.
