Transferring data at speeds of up to 40Gb/s, which is two times faster than Thunderbolt 2 and eight times faster than USB 3, Thunderbolt 3 delivers the fastest connection to any dock, display, or device. You can also daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt devices through a single port without needing a hub or a switch. So connecting a storage device to your computer, and then a display to your storage device, works as it’s meant to — with powerful throughput.8

Thunderbolt 3 provides twice the display bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2, enabling your Mac to support up to four 4K displays or up to two 6K displays.1 Which means that with two Thunderbolt controllers in the 16-inch MacBook Pro, you can send graphics to dual 6K displays for the perfect high-resolution photo and video editing setup. Thunderbolt 3 connects to DisplayPort displays and monitors with a cable, while supporting HDMI and VGA displays with the use of an adapter.

With Thunderbolt 3, a single USB-C port can deliver power in both directions. So a port can charge a device or, alternatively, be charged by one. And it’s capable of delivering up to 100 watts of power, so a single cable can be used to connect to a dock or display and charge your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air simultaneously.

I have a mid-2012 iMac and just bought a new external SSD which works fine from the USB ports but using a Thunderbolt to USB-C adapter and a male/male thunderbolt cable it won't power up. Do those Thunderbolt ports have any power? Are they somehow turned off and can be turned back on? I see the ports in my hardware configuration but they show nothing connected. The whole point of buying this hard drive was to use the Thunderbolt port because two of my USB2 ports aren't working properly.


I also have a 2014 Mac Mini and tried it there too with no luck.


Thanks for any help with this.
