StarTech Offers 40Gbps Speeds with DisplayPort and USB Power Delivery Through Its Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m)

The StarTech Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m) offers to provide faster Thunderbolt 3 speeds up to 40 Gbps when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 enabled Mac or Windows PC's. The .8 m / 2.7 ft cable also supports data transfer over the USB-C interface at USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds (up to 10 Gb/s) as well as DisplayPort 1.2 and USB Power Delivery 2.0 technologies.

The StarTech Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m) can also be used to 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. StarTech also claims to supply up to 100 watts of rapid charging power using USB Power Delivery 2.0 for its cable (check Amazon for pricing).

Using the GRL DI20 cable tester to test the insertion loss through the StarTech Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m), we can see the cable has slightly better overall signal integrity performance when compared to the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 40 Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m) even though they are the same length. The StarTech Thunderbolt 3 40Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m) loss behavior are close to the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 40 Gbps USB-C Cable (.8 m)  despite the StarTech cable costing less than the more expensive Belkin cable (see review here).
