Thanks to continuously improved technology, people no longer have to endure bulky laptops, and the design of the light-and-thin laptop is prevailing in the market within these years. As laptops become more portable, it is hard to incorporate full-functioned I/O ports. Therefore, Thunderbolt™ 4 has become a savior that offers multiple functions in one port, and now is commonly seen in premium laptops, including MSI Business & Productivity Series.

In addition, Thunderbolt™ 4 uses Type-C interface and provides 100W power-in supply, which is beneficial for those who are annoyed by carrying diverse kinds of cables and weighty adaptors. Thunderbolt™ 4 was first introduced with 11th Gen Intel platform, and opened up new capabilities to do more. The interface is not only compatible of USB4.0 device, but offers Display port, HDMI and VGA, functions like audio port and card reader, and could even extends 3 extra Thunderbolt™4 ports for further demand.

It's great to hear that it works between 2 PC's.
This is exactly what I've been trying to do (unsuccessfully) between 2 Windows 10 laptops with TB3.
