ORICO unveiled the first USB type-C cable that meets USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 standards. The cable utilizes an Intel IC to offer 40 Gbps transfer speeds, DisplayPort 1.4 passthrough with support for display resolutions of up to 8K @ 60 Hz, and bi-directional 100 W USB PD (power delivery). The cable features a solid alloy casing at the connectors, Nylon braiding throughout, and a reinforced bender that can take up to 10,000 bends. Available in cable lengths of 30 cm, 80 cm, and 2 m, the cable comes in two variants based on connector orientation, with the TBZ cable being standard, and TBW angled 90°. The 30 cm variant is priced at $20, the 80 cm variant at $27, and the 2 m variant at $57. Find them on Amazon here.

There is USB certification though looking through Amazon (because I'm not resetting my Ebay password literally every time I visit their website because they can't comprehend what a VPN is) it's damn near impossible to find something. USB wires aren't exactly something you spend a lot of time reading and researching about though I'm vaguely familiar with Orico and I think I have two or three of their products. It'd be nice to see certification clearly stated, to what version, etc because I and many others are willing to pay a little extra if it means not having to buy the same thing twice though the second time from another manufacturer.

The cable utilizes an Intel IC to offer 40 Gbps transfer speeds

This is either a blatant lie or a misunderstanding. All TB4 (0.5-2m) cables are passive copper cables (100W PD is what gives them away). 5m+ cables will require active components (as they'll be optical cables), and won't support more than 10W PD).

These cables are actually not that expensive to produce, they keep adding marketing BS to them to justify a $35+ price for a usable 1m-2m size (for the less expensive ones).
