Thunderbolt Technology 4 is a high-speed universal interface that connects many types of accessories, including USB devices and Thunderbolt Technology-enabled devices. You can also use any standard gaming monitor, as the Thunderbolt connector is natively compatible with DisplayPort monitors.
Thunderbolt Technology 4 docking station, increase the number of available ports with the Thunderbolt Technology 4 docking station. They feature up to four Thunderbolt ports for connecting Thunderbolt accessories and other USB-C accessories. They often offer additional ports, including USB-A, DisplayPort, AUX, Ethernet, and an SD card slot.
Game peripherals. Connect wired accessories like gaming keyboards, mice, and headsets to the Thunderbolt Technology 4 docking station to keep your desk clutter-free and keep your devices close at hand and ready.
Mechanical keyboards let you choose your preferred key type, from lightning-fast linear switches to switches with clicky sounds and full tactile feedback.
A wired gaming mouse offers consistent tracking with adjustable sensitivity, measured in dots per inch (DPI).
The headset provides accurate directional audio to identify sound sources and has a built-in microphone for communicating with your teammates.
Connect your live streaming device to the Thunderbolt Technology 4 docking station. Benefits include port expansion, neat and organized cable management, and the ability to quickly connect to live streaming peripherals when you want to go live.
External webcams typically have higher resolutions and frame rates than webcams integrated into laptops, thus providing smoother, clearer video. You can also easily move them around for better shooting angles.
An independent microphone can bring perfect audio quality to the live broadcast. Gaming headsets with built-in microphones are another good option. If you want professional sound quality and functionality, use an XLR microphone with a Thunderbolt audio interface.
The live broadcast platform, MIDI controller and programmable macro keyboard enable you to map common live broadcast functions to hotkeys. Switch scenes in real time, trigger overlays, play background music, interact with the audience, and publish messages to social media channels to announce the launch time.
Lightning technology external acquisition equipment. Adding a capture device that supports Thunderbolt technology to the settings can significantly improve the quality of live video.
With the help of external capture devices, you can capture and transmit video without affecting computer performance. Doing this ensures that your in-game performance is not affected by the video encoding process, allowing you to play games at higher frame rates.
Thunderbolt Technology acquisition devices take advantage of Thunderbolt Technology 4-port bandwidth up to 40 Gbps. On a computer used for live streaming, you can stream video footage at resolutions up to 4K at 60 frames per second, or 1080p at up to 240 frames per second (depending on the performance of your gaming PC, streaming PC and capture equipment).
Thunderbolt Technology solid state drive. A high-speed external drive can be an advantage for gaming. For example, you can store your game library on an external drive and take it with you to another computer. Thunderbolt Technology SSDs offer storage speeds of up to 3,000 Mbps, enabling high-speed loading and helping reduce lag when games load data in real time, resulting in a smooth gaming experience.
Gaming monitor. Thunderbolt 4 ports give you multiple display options. Connect Thunderbolt Technology monitors, DisplayPort 1.4 monitors, or use Thunderbolt Technology adapters or docking stations to connect HDMI, DVI, and VGA monitors. Take your pick.
High refresh rate monitors let you experience the beauty of gaming at frame rates of over 60 frames per second. Connect to a 144 Hz or 240 Hz gaming monitor for smoother animations and lower latency.
4K HDR displays show richer colors and details. You can also build a dual 4K display setup at 60 Hz. Or, connect a 5K or 8K monitor to play more games that support these ultra-high resolutions.
Ultrawide monitors can expand your view of the game world (the game must support such devices). Some ultrawide monitors feature curved surfaces that bring even the edges of the screen clearly into view.
External graphics card. Thunderbolt Technology enclosures feature convenient external expansion slots for mounting high-performance components that require access to the system's PCIe lanes. They are ideal for users of small form factor (SFF) computers or ultra-thin laptops.
With Thunderbolt Technology 4, the computer's mini-mum PCIe data requirements have increased from 16 Gbps to 32 Gbps, which means external graphics performance may increase (depending on the specifications of the case).
