Is the USB-C cable that ships with this monitor different from standard USB-C cables?

I connected it with a USB-C cable that I had been using to power my 12" rMacbook and it didn't seem to work. It only worked with the one that came with the monitor. Is the cable different?

    Hi I had this problem, the solution is to purchase a certified thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) cable, like belkin on the Apple Store £22 at the moment, which is what I did and the monitor works perfectly, also regardless of what others say, the Macbook pro 15" seems to charge from the monitor no problem, hope this helps
