Thunderbolt 3 on all 2020 gram laptops

If you're looking at getting the LG gram 14 for 2020, then you'll be pleased to know that it, like all of the refreshed gram lineup, supports Thunderbolt 3 from its USB-C port.

That means you have access to superfast data transfer, and opens up a whole realm of possibilities for what you can do with your gram 14.

Thunderbolt 3 is currently the fastest way to transfer data from a laptop to an external device, allowing up to 5 GB/s transfers and a four-lane PCIe 3.0 connection. In practice, this means over one single cable, you can transfer high-speed data and power external displays, or hook up a desktop GPU to your laptop.

The gram 14 certainly isn't a gaming laptop, but it does have the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 inside. Paired with an external GPU like the Razer Core X (opens in new tab) with a desktop graphics card inside, it can absolutely be a proper gaming rig.

Not just for gaming, either, creators and professionals all enjoy powerful graphics. Thunderbolt 3 is also perfect to hook up docks and external displays, turning your new laptop into a full desktop setup with nothing more than a single cable.

A well-equipped laptop

Aside from Thunderbolt 3, the rest of the spec list on the gram 14 reads exceptionally well. You have that 10th Gen Core i7 1065G7, and it's backed up by 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB NVMe SSD, and a whopping 72Wh battery which LG says is good up to 18.5 hours of use.

Let us not forget to mention the thin, absurdly light body, and the good looking 14-inch 1080p IPS display as well. LG is a relatively small player in the laptop space, but the 2020 gram 14 is shaping up as one of the best Ultrabooks around right now.
