For a media professional, data transfer is everything. The faster one can move and manipulate media, the more efficient the machine becomes. We take it for granted really but the massive work to perfect everything you watch on TV is incredible… and the ability to move media quickly is central to efficiency. This is where Thunderbolt 3 stands out. TB3 increases data transmission to 40Gbps which is 5GB/s theoretically, but breaks down to a maximum of about 2.8GB/s in reality.
