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.

The LG UltraFine 27MD5KL-B 27" 16:9 5K IPS Monitor is specifically designed to be used with a MacOS computer, I wouldn't recommend trying to use it with a Windows PC as many of the monitor's settings are controlled through MacOS.
