Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station Powers Dual 4K Displays


Accessory maker Henge Docks, best known for its docking stations made for MacBooks, announced today that it has signed up to be an official Apple reseller allowing it to offer Apple's MacBooks and accessories bundled with its companion products. The SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Dock is powered, and can supply up to 85W of power to a connected laptop, making it one of the few docks we've seen that can charge larger computers like Apple's newest 15-inch MacBook Pro.

The latest professional notebook from Apple is a masterpiece of industrial design and has an ingenious OLED touchscreen strip where one would usually find the function keys.

Elgato has introduced its soon-to-launch Thunderbolt 3 Dock, a device that supports dual 4K displays, laptop charging, fast data transfers, and more. There's sadly no SD card reader, though... The front sports USB 3 and USB-C ports.

Enter the OWC DEC, which will take a weight off many Mac users' minds but will add a little mass to their notebook bags. On the rear of the device are two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB 3 port, gigabit ethernet, DisplayPort, and audio in and out jacks.

According to the manufacturer, the DEC will grant the 2016 MacBook Pro owner with a monumental 4TB of storage and it also brings back the SD card slot for creative professionals and content creators.

However, the DEC adds almost 10mm of thickness to a 2016 MacBook Pro and the company is yet to confirm how much more weight this base will add. The company expects shipments of the DEC to begin in Spring, though there's yet no pricing information. Though you can not deny the versatile nature of Thunderbolt 3, we are at this transitionary phase where users will find it extremely hard to cope with the new notebook.
