Cable identification

Hello all, does anyone have a guess at to what this weird cable is for?

If it helps any, I think it was a Dell sourced cable as I used to manage a lot of Dell servers and laptops.

It's definitely USB on one side but no idea about the other .....

USB 3.0 B SS

It's called a USB 3.0 B SS (Super Speed) connector.

 

For example, I found this on Amazon for less then $7 (USD)

Wow, in all my years, I don't think I ever used such cable and was surprised that I even had this.

Thanks again
