Tether cable confusion

Looking at getting a tether cable from area51tetherco or tether tools. The USB specs have me all confused so looking for some help. I have an R5 which takes a USB-C type connection and despite my laptop having a Thunderbolt 4/USB-C 4 I am looking to plug it into one of my USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports.

From my understanding (correct me if I am wrong) I will not loose any speed by doing so.

If I look at tether tool's website it says to get this cable which is only rated for USB 3.0.  So I assume this would be slower than if I used a USB-C to USB-C cable.  Is that right?
