Apple are now also the Kabel Pro: a 2m long Thunderbolt 3 cable is now available from Apple for just under $130.
In fact the Apple Thunderbolt 3 Pro cable has a Pro in its name. The only question is: why is the cable Pro? The product description mentions that it has a “braided design that coils without tangling”. This is of course practical and looks good. It is also known that long Thunderbolt 3 active chips in the plugs to transmit the signal and therefore are not really cheap.
But Apple offers an alternative: The same from Belkin – this costs just under $80. The technical specifications of both models seem identical. If you know the difference that justifies the price difference, please let us know.
