my temp job lists having the 3.1 gen 2 port (10Gbps) but I only have the 3.1 gen 1 usb port type C. Can i still get away with using the Gen 1 version which is 5Gbps? What would happen if I use Gen 1?

Also are the thunderbolt porst on macbook pros an updated version to the 3.1 Gen 1 ports?

Nothing as they are backwards compatible.

Apple uses proprietary hardware.....Apple can only be used with Apple.

Thnak you! Can I still get away with using Gen 1 USB? Given that it requires a headset will the data transfer speeds just be a bit lower? Will that impact performance in any way?

Sorry I think that was a typo, but I meant to say can If I can still get away with using the 3.1. Gen 1 USB. My job requires using a wired headset with microphone since it is a remote customer service position. Will the data transfer speeds of 5Gbps be ok?
