Looks to be a certified thunderbolt 3 cable. 1 m length (3.3 ft) active cable (so it can do 40Gb/s 100 w power delivery AND be over .5m long) Details for $109 on the company's site and $64.99 @best buy

Good deal if you don't want your eGPU right next to your laptop.

The image of the connector does not look right. The connector on my new thunderbolt 3 laptop is hollow - these images look like there is something inside. The cost is great if this works, but I pass as I already goofed buying a thunderbolt 2 dock. I did not realize it requires an adaptor for the conversion to a thunderbolt 3. Then there is usb-c!

It is hollow, you're just seeing the pins inside.

Eh, good find, but I'm starting to think this is not a deal.

Even with first time 10% order coupon bringing it down to $29.42. The new OEM Apple TB3 [apple.com] cable is a bit shorter, but it does support Displayport via USB-C, which the J5Create does not. I'm a big fan of the J5Create cables, and have about 4 of their JUCX01 USB-C cables that support full 10Gbps and 100w charging.

Better to get the Apple cable for $10 more, IMO.
