Intel quietly released the new Thunderbolt 3 controller, upgrading from the previous Alpine Ridge JHL6x40 series to the Titan Ridge JHL7x40 series.
The new main control still supports 40Gbps ultra-high transmission bandwidth and PCI-E 3.0 standard, because the Thunderbolt 3 standard itself has not changed, and the main control specifications have not changed much, mainly by adding support for DisplayPort 1.4.
DisplayPort 1.4 has been released almost two years ago. It supports 3: 1 visual lossless video stream compression, USB 3.0 data video synchronous transmission, 60Hz / 8K and 120Hz / 4K ultra-high-definition video. Thunderbolt 3 also has these skills now.
There are three types of JHL7x40 series main controllers, among which JHL7340 and JHL7540 are for motherboards and notebooks, and JHL7440 is for peripheral devices, which is compatible with USB Type-C.
According to Intel, this year will see the Thunderbolt 3 device based on the new master control of the JHL7x40 series.
