Thunderbolt ports are found on numerous recent high end workstations and notebooks. Example the HP Z240 series has a HP PCIe 1 port Thunderbolt card and the Zbook 15 generation 5 has 3 USB-C Thunderbolt ports.

They put Thunderbolt on their interfaces because itís where their customers, the mid to higher end of the Mac-based market, are. If they have the hardware on their interfaces, they figured they might as well appeal to a larger audience by making it work in Windows as well. They also know that Intel is building Thunderbolt 3 into its newer chipsets and will eventually become more common in the Windows world.

Universal Audio has been releasing interfaces with Thunderbolt 3, Mac and Windows 10 compatible. It looks like what tfort wrote is why. All new Macs have TB3, and Windows PCs will as well. This is a great thing, JMO.

Most audio interfaces don't even support USB 3...as if it never existed. Good to hear TB3 is becoming available for the Windows world.
