Which cable offers a quicker connection.
A Thunderbolt cable or a Gigabit Ethernet cable?
Thunderbolt is technically 10-20x faster than GigE.
There is really no such thing as a Gigabit Ethernet cable. There is CAT 5E which is 1gig and there is CAT 6 which is capable of 10gig. Thunderbolt is also 10gig.
Which Thunderbolt 1 or 2? I assume the following was TB1.
"I recently did some experimenting with the migration assistant. The source machine is a 2011 MacBook Air and the target machine is a 2012 Macbook Pro Retina. The data transferred is 127gb.
Wireless. 4.7 hours
Ethernet direct. 1.7 hours
Thunderbolt. 10 minutes
All three techniques resulted in a flawless transfer of data, settings, etc. the software just works, and the a thunderbolt technology makes it crazy fast."
