Cable capabilities include support for 8K video output at 60fps depending on the model based on which the bandwidth for data transfer will be determined, since the load power of 240W is shared by all.
These are the models:
- The first is CAC-1573. It is a charging cable, since its transfer speed is that of a USB 2.0 and, therefore, only 480 Mbps.
- The second type is the CAC-1575. It is part of the USB 4 standard and transmits up to 20 Gbps in 2 x 2. Regarding its video capabilities, it can reach 4K and a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
- Finally there is the CAC-1576, which is also USB 4 and has a transfer rate of 40 Gbps in 3 x 2. Its video capacity is 8K at 60 Hz, so it has 4 times the bandwidth in this aspect . However, the cable is 1 meter long, compared to 2 meters in the other two cases.
