Thunderbolt 3 Laptop to PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone,

I was just wondering a small thing about Thunderbolt 3. 

There are many Thunderbolt 3 Laptops out there and with an expansion card you can add Thunderbolt 3 to a Desktop.

So what happens if you directly connect your Laptop to your Desktop?

I thought about maybe seeing the drives, but it also can be, that nothing happens.

Thanks for every awnser!

You need to have a TB3 support from the motherboard.

For direct connection, nothing will happen, you need to setup TB networking on both devices to work.

Ok thanks for your replay.

He does it on Macs. I know it works there but does it also work on PC by creating a Thunderbolt network?

Yea, ip over thunderbolt works on windows and linux aswell.

 

But ip over thunderbolt is limited to 10gb/s, so you won't get the full speed.

 

It will work just like any other network connection
