Why do I need Usb Type C on my motherboard ?

Go to solution Solved by Arika S,

there are numerous type-c to type-c devices.

 

Think external SSDs

Pen displays

USB Hubs if you need more ports (type-c usually has a higher throughput)

it could be a thunderbolt port and therefore compatible with thunderbolt devices.

 

you don't "need" type-c, but it's better to have it and not need it than not have it when you do need it.

Would I be able to transfer files from one computer to another if I plug the Type - C on the motherboard and the Type-A on another computer?

no

I was picking parts for my first build and I saw that the motherboard that I had selected ( Asus Prime Z490-A ) had a USB Type C Port. Since this is an output port ( this is just my assumption, if you know better, please enlighten me ) and most USB-C cables have a Type-A on one side and a Type - C on the other, if I plug the male Type - C into the female Type - C Port on the back I/O of the motherboard, I would have an unplugged male USB Type-A connector. So in order to plug it somewhere, you know since the cable is supposed to be plugged on both ends, I would need a device with a female USB - A Port. So far the only possible devices that I could think of are the I/O at the back, maybe some speakers, maybe another computer?

USB to USB networking is possible but not as straight forward like a lan cable.

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

They used to, but that's not really the case anymore. A lot of devices come with c - c cables these days
