Priced at $159 in the United States, the 3-meter cable provides users with a longer option than the 1-meter Thunderbolt 4 Pro cable that Apple includes with the Studio Display. Apple also sells a 1.8-meter version of the cable for $129.

Featuring a black braided design, the cable supports Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4, and USB 4 data transfer at up to 40Gb/s, USB 3.1 Gen 2 data transfer at up to 10Gb/s, DisplayPort video output (HBR3), and USB-C Power Delivery at up to 100W.

The cable can also be used with Apple's Pro Display XDR, USB-C and Thunderbolt docks, external storage drives, and more.

Why is so funny? Try to find a 3 m Thunderbolt 4 cable at any price. You will fine NONE unless you go fiber optic.

A good teardown of the cable can be watched here. A lot is going into it.

Until a few months ago, carrying a TB4 signal up to 2 m was almost impossible. That's why cheaper alternatives like Cables Matters, CalDigit, OWC and others cap at 2 m. This Apple TB4 Cable is the first Thunderbolt 4 cable breaking the 2 m barrier and that's why it's more expensive.

3M thunderbolt cables aren't a thing. I looked into getting a cable around that length about 3 years ago and the only option was the MUCH more expensive optical cables. At the time I would have gladly paid 'only' $159
