A bit bigger than the typical Gigabit Ethernet dongles that are Available

This Gigabit Thunderbolt 3 Ethernet adapter is a bit smaller than the 10GbE dock from Akitio. However, it is bigger than the typical Gigabit Ethernet dongles that are available.

Akitio wisely choose to add a passive cooling system in this adapter. The heatsink also helps keep things nice and cool. Because of this design, the T3-10G is dead quiet when in use, which is what MacBook Pro users thinks is perfect for anyone who works in audio or video production. Now you can transfer humongous files in Gigabit speed. Lovely!

The Gigabit Ethernet adapter speed tests shows its very 4K-capable in speed. It seems that Akitio is very good at making Thunderbolt 3 products for Mac. They have lots of experience in this field. It really seems like this is one of the best options for MacBook Pro owners. 10GbE product from the same company got additional I/O. But if you don’t need that, then T3-10G does what it says it’s doing.

It is giving MacBook Pro owners Gigabit connection!
