PR_OWC_30MThunderboltRecently we showed you on the OWC Blog that our Thunderbolt cables offer great performance even at lengthy distances.

Tech website TweakTown also ran some tests recently on a variety of Thunderbolt cables from various makers, including OWC’s 1 meter offering, to get a head-to-head look at the cables’ performance.

Unsurprisingly, OWC’s Thunderbolt cable more than held up against the competition.

In fact, TweakTown’s Blackmagic Disk Speed Test with a Late 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display showed OWC’s cables to be the fastest in both read and write results!

Check out the results from the testing below:
