Adaptertek and Intel Collaborate to Release the World's First Thunderbolt 3 Titan Ridge Module



With the support of Intel (Shenzhen), Dong Guan Chen Shuan Electronic Co., Ltd (Adaptertek) pioneered the Thunderbolt 3 Titan Ridge Module and became the first company in China to have both Intel certified and Apple certified Thunderbolt 3 Dock .


With a focus on Thunderbolt 3 downstream peripheral solutions, Adaptertek has always been committed to continuously enhancing the user experience, not only in terms of product quality, but also in terms of after-sales service to exceed customer expectations. Over the years, Adaptertek has continued to innovate in product technology, from USB 2.0 to Thunderbolt 3, leading customers to keep pace with cutting-edge technology, enhancing workstation performance and improving process bottlenecks. Over the years, Adaptertek has been a close partner of Apple and Intel, and all of our new products have been verified and certified by both companies. Adaptertek not only pursues innovation, but also represents a wealth of product development and user experience, as well as a commitment to quality assurance for our customers.

The official release of Thunderbolt 3 Module has driven the rapid development of Thunderbolt 3 docking market, saving the time and cost of design, R&D, testing, and certification for the majority of development manufacturers, allowing Thunderbolt 3 docking technology to spread rapidly and up to 40Gbps transfer rate is no longer a dream.

No Thunderbolt port EV testing is required for any I/O board using this module, only Thunderbolt FV, Power Delivery and residual I/O port testing. Estimated savings of ~70% in product development effort, certification test time and cost.

Thunderbolt 3 Module with I/O board allows you to fully charge your MacBook Pro with just one Thunderbolt 3 cable and drive two 4K (one via DP and one via Thunderbolt 3 interface) or one 5K or 8K external display at the same time with high speed data transfer up to 40 Gbps, fully utilizing the flexibility of USB-C Thunderbolt 3 interface to output power/display/data at the same time!


Two Thunderbolt 3 ports, Port A and Port B, are configured on the Module.
Port A connectivity for Thunderbolt 3-enabled Macs allows you to power your Mac with a single cable and bring up to 40 Gbps of high-speed data transfer.

Port B supports 40 Gbps high-speed data transfer and can daisy-chain up to six other Thunderbolt 3 devices to laptops and expand the number of arrays. It can also connect to other iPhone, iPad or USB Type C HUB devices and provide 15W power supply. External graphics cards and matrix hard drives can also be connected.
