Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Power Pass-Through

For less cable clutter, the Thunderbolt 3 port also supports up to 94W of power delivery, so you can simultaneously power your MacBook.

macOS Integration

When connected to a Mac, this monitor lets users adjust display settings such as brightness and volume without having to use its hardware buttons.

Built-In Camera and Speakers

Thanks to a built-in camera and speakers, this display offers users video-chatting capabilities right out of the box.

Will this accept a DisplayPort video source? Or is a thunderbolt equipped host the *only* way to send video to this display? I’m confused about this.
Asked by: Nick
I did some research on this, and it will work with USB-C (DisplayPort Alternate Mode) but only at 4K resolution. I believe LG added this functionality to this specific version of the display, it's not on the other version of it, so people could connect iPad Pro's to it, because the iPad Pro does not have Thunderbolt, yet LG shows the iPad Pro working on the marketing material on their website.
