    Greetings!

    I am interested in getting a longer thunderbolt 3 cable for connecting my rbs to my core v2 as the provided cable is rather short.
    Since the tb3 cable in the razerstore has been unavailible to buy for the last 3 months or so, i am looking for other vendors.

    My question is - does anyone have experience with thunderbolt 3 cables? Is there some kind of certification necessary so they work with the core or can I just buy any cable? It seems some tb3 cables are certified for a certain transmission speed (20 or 40 gbs i think) while other give no indication whatsoever. Does anyone know wether these certifications really make a difference?
    Thank you for your input and for helping me!

    Greetings ;)
    I did write on support board thread that they should restock here since...that thread exists, still looking everyday here in Germany stores, still unavailable, meanwhile on US store is always available:/
    I heard Caldigit from Amazon or mantis made TB3 2m cable that doesn’t reduce 40gb bandwidth, but I don’t want 3rd party pheriperal to ruin my almost 2k setting. One of Cladigit user reported that the TB3 burned, even it didn’t reduce bandwidth and working fine on his setting. Don’t get 20gb one (actually for eGPU setting it’s 16, and 32gb Bandwidth), because you’ll get half performance than the short one that comes with the core. It’s usually has TB3 mark on the cable, idk though if 20gb one also marks the logo same as 40 one.

    Good Morning and thank you all for the replies!
    Ill see what i can get :)
    BTW - if you think the razer cable is expensive (even tough not in stock) - all the ones i found on amazon that state they are 40gbps certified cost even more :slightly_sad:

    I think on Amazon it costs around €50, for 2m, don’t get any lower price tag, it’s doubtful imo. Razer one idk since it’s not on stock but if it’s $60, maybe £60 and here €65~70. I’ll get it even on that price tag...I still have zSilver to redeem;)

    It’s a huge difference! I think there’s three types usb C, charging only, charging and data transfer, one again...forgot;) the trasfer able one is also different according type C/20gb TB2 or TB3 40gb.
