Thunderbolt 3 vs Thunderbolt 4

At first, Thunderbolt 4 may not appear to be different to Thunderbolt 3, it has improved in several key areas.

The first improvement is that minimum PCIe data requirements have increased from 16Gbps to 32Gbps.

This means that high-speed external PCIe devices like HomeKit Australia Thunderbolt Fire SSD drive and external graphics will see significant increases in data transfer rates and performance.

Second, VT-d based DMA protection that forms part of Thunderbolt 4, helps prevent security threats by remapping requests from external devices and checking for proper permissions.

And third, Thunderbolt 4 also adds "Wake from Sleep". Wake from Sleep over Thunderbolt 4 allows a Mac, iPad or PC to resume processing with peripherals that are connected through a Thunderbolt 4 docking station.

Thunderbolt 4 also doubles its video support for dual 4K displays at 60Hz or one 8K display at 30Hz. It still transfers data at 40Gbps like Thunderbolt 3 but with the doubled PCIe bandwidth. External GPU users can expect the same sort of increase.
