“We are excited to continue to lead the industry in connectivity solutions with Thunderbolt technology. Thunderbolt Share delivers on our aspiration to bring innovative solutions to the market and deliver new experiences for users to get the most out of their PCs. Now users can seamlessly access one PC from another at Thunderbolt technology speeds. It truly changes how users can be more productive and efficient.”

Why It Matters: Thunderbolt Share, powered by the unique Thunderbolt networking capability, enables users to interact with two PCs simply and efficiently – a solution that benefits users of multiple PCs.

Creators and gamers will enjoy improved productivity with multi-PC workflows and easy collaboration between colleagues, and they will be able to share preferred peripherals. Consumers and business professionals will enjoy better ergonomics with shared monitors, and they will be able to maximize workspaces using multiple PCs. Thunderbolt technology has the bandwidth and low latency to deliver these capabilities with the quality and experience that users demand.

What Thunderbolt Share Delivers: Compatible with Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 5 PCs running the Windows® operating system, Thunderbolt Share utilizes the high bandwidth and low latency of Thunderbolt technology to provide:

  • Smooth uncompressed screen-sharing with ultra-responsive mouse and keyboard control between PCs – powering a seamless visual experience.
  • Fast file transfers between two PCs with simple drag and drop, folder synchronization, and easy file migration from an old PC to a new PC.
  • Easy collaboration between users sharing large files.
  • Support via a direct connection between PCs or through a Thunderbolt accessory with multiple ports such as a Thunderbolt dock or monitor.
  • Private and secure connection that doesn’t affect Wi-Fi, Ethernet or cloud network performance.


About Thunderbolt: Thunderbolt technology is globally recognized as one of the best wired connectivity solution for PCs and accessories. Thunderbolt technology has quickly become a ubiquitous feature in the PC market, found in hundreds of millions of computers and accessories today, including all Intel® Evo™ Edition laptops and Intel® vPro® laptops.

With Thunderbolt Share, PC users can further expand the connectivity experiences that Thunderbolt-certified products are designed to offer.

What’s Next: Thunderbolt Share will be offered on select PCs and accessories starting in the second half of 2024. Look for upcoming announcements from companies including Lenovo, Acer, MSI, Razer, Kensington, Belkin, Promise, Plugable, OWC and others.
