What is Thunderbolt 2?

Thunderbolt 2 uses the same size port and Thunderbolt cable, but doubles the speed by using a controller chip that uses the original two 10Gbps bi-directional channels and combines them into a single 20Gbps bi-directional channel. Thunderbolt 2 will also support DisplayPort 1.2, which enables video streaming to one 4k monitor, or dual QHD displays. Thunderbolt 2 is backward compatible with Thunderbolt.
