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.

Can I run two of these through a new late 2020 ...

Can I run two of these through a new late 2020 Mac Mini. I understand that you can run one monitor through the USB Type-C Port, and run one monitor through the HDMI Port. This monitor doesn't have a HDMI connection. Can I use a HDMI to USB Type C so I can have two of these monitors running at the same time?

Display port 1.4 adapter

Display port 1.4 adapter
Asked by: John
This display has a single USC input port. It does not directly support display-port. Note that most adapters support usc on the computer side and display-port on the display side. Apple sells an adaptor that claims to be bidirectional but I have not tried it. Also note that the 5K display requires high bandwidth on the USC cable that limits its length to perhaps 3 ft. This is really a Mac oriented display that works great with Apple MacBook laptops.
