Ive been reading alot about this thunderbolt 3 lately and apparently I have 2 ports which support this feature. It can deliver 40gbps at full bandwidth and I believe 100w of power?
Im interested in the bandwidth aspect because I could potentially run any camera/filterwheel/autofocuser combo on the same hub down a single thunderbolt cable without having bandwidth issues.
Apparently you are currently limited by cable length, if you go longer than 3 feet the bandwidth drops from 40gbps to 20gbps, and 6.5' is the longest Thunderbolt 3 cable that you can use.
Supposedly they are working on a fiber optic version which has full bandwidth at a length of 65m, but if its anything like the dow corning usb 3 fiber optic cables, they will be pricey.
To the point, Im interested in getting a hub to match with a 6.5ft thunderbolt 3 cable, if anyone else is using one of these can you recommend a good brand?
