Much of the world of personal computing is already both grounded in wireless technologies for data transmission or the internet. This does not mean, however, that professional or advanced users do not have to resort to some physical solutions to perform some processes and one of them is the door. 10 Gigabit Ethernet, which allows for a very high data transfer rate (which is essential for some specific tasks).
Currently, s iMac Pro It has such a port other Macs with Ethernet inputs are standard 1 Gigabit (more modest) and the laptops have goodbye interface a few years ago. Therefore, the peripheral manufacturer Other World Computing is launching this week the adapter Thunderbolt 3 for 10 Gigabit Ethernet, for owners of “common” iMacs and MacBooks (Pro) that need the connection.
The OWC adapter has a Thunderbolt 3 connector that passes data and power to the accessory, and the cable is enclosed in the plastic shield with an internal connection ie if the wire is damaged, it is not necessary to replace the entire adapter. It supports 10 Gigabit BASE-T connections as well as lower rates (5G, 2.5G, Gigabit or 100BASE-T Ethernet port has LEDs that glow green or yellow depending on the connection speed).
The Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet adapter, although primarily intended for Macs, also works with PCs without any additional configuration simply plug into your machine's port and exit using. It can be purchased from the OWC website at $ 188.
