I found this pretty interesting.
Certainly explains the cost of the Apple cable… Have been caught out by one no-name USB-C cable being charge only myself recently when trying to connect a external drive, lesson learnt.
I was shocked at the sophistication of the Apple Thunderbolt cable. Basically, I was left wondering how they make it so cheaply?
Very interesting. Thank you for this…
If your pressed for time to watch the clip. Here’s the scan images.
Although it’s like comparing a Peterbilt to a Tacoma.
Yep. There’s actually a computer in the Apple cable. That’s not an exaggeration.
They did make the point that most USB-C cables are actually used purely for charging, and the extra data functionality doesn’t matter much in most cases. The Thunderbolt standard has a different customer. The mechanical integrity and durability are arguably more important for the frequent plug-un-plug cycles of charging.
Fascinating. I do wish they had compared say an OWC or Chinese branded Thunderbolt cable to the Apple vs just other cheap USB-C cables.
Yes, that would be interesting.
