Thunderbolt has direct displayport pass through. Half the pins on the cable were carrying a displayport signal; the other half were used for thunderbolt data for everything else. USB3 docks have to package video data into USB packets and then decode it at the other end. You get overhead from the un/packaging; combined with USBs focus on being as cheap as possible requiring dumb as a sack of hammer controllers that need the CPU to do all their heavy lifting. Thunderbolt (and FireWire before it) controllers are able to do almost all of their IO without needing to bother the CPU: It's why they could offer much higher QoS levels. It's also why they're so much more expensive.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
