USB-C™ or (Type-C) is the connector many have dubbed ''future proof.'' With its small and versatile design and the capabilities to carry multiple protocols, including those with advanced data rates and power, it’s not hard to see why this label ''future proof'' fits perfectly. The USB-C™ connector brings you more than just your basic USB functionality. It can carry everything from USB 1.1 to USB 3.2 Gen 2x2, as well as DisplayPort™ and HDMI™ (via Alt modes) and Thunderbolt™ 3 (on Thunderbolt™ 3 equipped laptops). That kind of versatility means this single connector brings users more productivity and possibilities than ever before.
