Performance & Expansion Are Faster and Smarter
Thunderbolt technology gives you access to a world of high-speed peripherals and high-resolution displays via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port.
Now with Thunderbolt 2 built into the Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini and iMac with Retina 5K display, you can connect the latest displays and get double the bandwidth for your peripherals. And the two generations of Thunderbolt technology are compatible with each other.
PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt. Which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box. With Thunderbolt, your external devices like RAID arrays and video capture solutions become hot‑pluggable and easy to move between your Mac computers.
High Performance On Display
Thunderbolt 2 gives you access to the latest 4K monitors. In fact, with the Mac Pro, you can connect up to three 4K displays at once. And because Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, it provides native support for the Apple Thunderbolt Display and Mini DisplayPort displays. DVI, HDMI, and VGA displays connect through the use of adapters.
