Longer Thunderbolt 3 Cables
« on: July 03, 2018, 03:12:46 pm »
A query on another forum (https://www.gearslutz.com/board/connectors-cables-stands-and-accessories/1221760-do-3-meter-thunderbolt-3-cables-exist.html) asked about sourcing longer Thunderbolt 3 cables (with the USB-C connector).
The spec says that copper cables should be available up to 3m, and optical up to 30m.  But not in evidence if you actually want to buy one.  What gives?
