Thunderbolt 3 Brings One-cable World Into View

If you look at your computer's roster of ports, you're likely to see at least three different types: one for charging, a standard USB port, and a Thunderbolt port. But the tech industry just took a big step toward eliminating the need for more than one kind of port, bringing a world where you only need one cable for everything that much closer. According to Ars Technica UK, Intel announced on Tuesday that Thunderbolt 3, an update to its speedy transfer tool, will change its form factor to work with USB Type-C. It'll support up to two external 4k monitors or one 5k monitor.
