ASUS ThunderboltEX 3 Thunderbolt/Usb Adapter Expansion Card
Asus Thunderboltex 3
Designed for select Asus motherboards with a TB header, this add-on card brings advanced Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which integrates 40 Gbps Thunderbolt 3, reversible USB 3.1 Type-C and DisplayPort 1.2 into a single port. The Thunderbolt 3 also supports daisy-chain of multiple devices. If a monitor is present in the daisy chain, it’s needed to connect the included cable to the miniDP input on the card, and to the DisplayPort output of the system’s integrated or discrete graphics. This card offers USB Power Delivery of up to 36W through the Thunderbolt port, and comes with a USB-A 10 Gbps port. With PCIe 3.0 x4 host interface, this is a quick-to-fit expansion card into x16, x8 and x4 slots.
At a breathtaking 40Gbps you’ll experience faster transfers, with four times (4X) the data speeds of any other cable and twice (2X) the video bandwidth.
By integrating reversible USB 3.1 Type-C and DisplayPort 1.2, the ThunderboltEX 3 gears you up for compatibility with the latest high-speed devices, from super-fast external drives to 4K UHD displays.
