USB-C Data Transfer Speed

2017-10-01, 5:59 AM

I'm wondering if anyone knows the USB-C standard for data transfer speed that the moto z2 force is capable of so I can purchase the corrosponding cord. I would just buy the fastest 1.6 meter 40gb/sec cable but I'd like to save a dollar or two if I can.

Usb-c is the connector. Transfer speed is governed by the usb number spec. The phone does usb 3.1+ (i forget which exact number above 3) and supports super speed.  

 

I bought this cable, and compared to usb 2.0 is huge.

Keep in mind your pc needs to support this. If you have a mac there is a google android bug accessing dcim folder via super speed port.

I have one of the last Toshiba laptops made that has a usb-c in it so I'm wanting a usb-c to usb-c cable. Any suggestions there? I'm thinking of this one, but again, its pricy-ish:

You still need to determine if the usb-c port supports usb 3.1 transfer speeds.  This cable is cheaper and does https://www.amazon.com/CablePlux-Type-C-Braided-Delivery-MacBook/dp/B01MYAYN5U/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1506879393&sr=1-2&keywords=Usb-c+3.1

So a gen 1 (5Gbps) superspeed cable is as fast as I can get with the moto z2 force edition (not accounting for my laptops capability)? 

Further, a Gen 2 (10Gbps) superspeed would not be needed at this point?
...and a thunderbolt 3 (up to 40Gbps) would not be useful to an even higher degree?

I was told the Z phones support gen 2 but i have not tested as i believe my pc/mac machines only support gen 1.  

 

The phone doesnt support thunderbolt, so that is a moot point. 

 

But if i were buying a cable i would buy gen 2 for future proofing.  Buying a  Thunderbolt cable, i am not so sure about.  It depends if you need it and if your computers support it and what else you may use it for.
