The next-generation Thunderbolt is also compatible with prior versions of Thunderbolt, USB and DisplayPort.

“We’re very excited to lead the industry forward with the next generation of Thunderbolt built on the USB4 v2 specification, advanced to this next generation by Intel and other USB Promoter Group members,” Jason Ziller, general manager of Intel’s client connectivity division, said.

Intel says it will share more details, including the next-generation Thunderbolt’s name, features, and capabilities, in 2023.
