Thunderbolt for gamers

Thunderbolt 4 offers new and improved opportunities for gamers and their setups.

First, a multi-port Thunderbolt docking station can connect via a Thunderbolt 4 cable to a single Thunderbolt 4 port on your Mac, laptop, iPad Pro or PC.

Plus a Thunderbolt 4 docking station will increase the number of devices you can connect to your Thunderbolt equipped gaming setup.

Gamers might connect a high-end 60Hz monitor, gaming keyboard, a gaming mouse and a Thunderbolt SSD external drive to the docking station. The Thunderbolt docking station then only requires a single Thunderbolt 4 cable that plugs into your computer or gaming device.

Thunderbolt 4 docking stations increase the number of Thunderbolt 4 ports available, plus typically add additional ports for USB-C, USB, DisplayPort, audio, memory cards and ethernet.

Gamers also have access to the huge advantage offered by ultra-premium Thunderbolt 4 data storage. Thunderbolt 4 transfers data at 40Gbps, so it is easy to connect high performance data storage like the Thunderbolt external SSD’s or a gaming monitor.

The bonus with Thunderbolt 4 is this bandwidth works in both directions so the outgoing video signal doesn't conflict with incoming data from other devices or peripherals such as Thunderbolt SSD drive.

Plus, gamers can use a Thunderbolt docking station to keep their gaming space organised.

Using Thunderbolt 4, gamers can add an external video capture device for streaming. Thunderbolt 4 allows for video capture gameplay in full 4K at 60Hz or in 1080p at 240Hz. By using a dedicated video capture unit for gameplay, Thunderbolt 4 frees up valuable system resources.

So Thunderbolt 4 allows gamers to play games at higher settings whilst retaining excellent video quality.

Thunderbolt 4 also allows the connection of an external GPU. The external GPU is used to improve graphics performance on the gaming computer and to also speed data mining for the cryptocurrency flock.
