About this deal
During CES 2020, USB-IF and Intel stated their intention to allow USB4 products that support all the optional functionality as Thunderbolt 4 products. The first products compatible with USB4 are expected to be Intel's Tiger Lake series and AMD's Zen 3 series of CPU, released in 2020. You’ll typically find USB Type B ports on larger devices you connect to your computer, such as printers and scanners. You might also have external storage devices or drives that use them. A USB system consists of a host with one or more downstream facing ports (DFP),  and multiple peripherals, forming a tiered- star topology. Additional USB hubs may be included, allowing up to five tiers. A USB host may have multiple controllers, each with one or more ports. Up to 127 devices may be connected to a single host controller.   :8–29 USB devices are linked in series through hubs. The hub built into the host controller is called the root hub.
UAC 3.0 primarily introduces improvements for portable devices, such as reduced power usage by bursting the data and staying in low power mode more often, and power domains for different components of the device, allowing them to be shut down when not in use. a b "USB Power Delivery".

Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 use USB-C.    Thunderbolt3 has two physical 20Gbit/s bi-directional channels, aggregated to appear as a single logical 40Gbit/s bi-directional channel. Thunderbolt 3 controllers can incorporate a USB3.1 Gen2 controller to provide compatibility with USB devices. They are also capable of providing DisplayPort Alternate Mode as well as DisplayPort over USB4 Fabric, making the function of a Thunderbolt3 port a superset of that of a USB3.1 Gen2 port. This charging station contains 2 5A ports and provides high power for busy office environments. The Harmony device is designed to be on the desk and has multiple charging outlets for both USB Type A and USB Type C devices. USB4 Specification Language Usage Guidelines from USB-IF" (PDF).

These offer performance comparable to internal drives, limited by the number and types of attached USB devices, and by the upper limit of the USB interface. Other competing standards for external drive connectivity include eSATA, ExpressCard, FireWire (IEEE 1394), and most recently Thunderbolt.
