If you’re using a laptop out on the road but want the luxury of a workstation setup back at base, a docking station is the way to go.
Plugable has now launched its latest TBT3-UDZ model which works with any USB-C or Thunderbolt equipped laptop on the market. It allows for the connection of up to two additional 4K displays via either HDMI or Display Port, without using any external adapters. Plugable says its new model is the first Thunderbolt 3 docking station to offer this functionality.
Thanks to a total of 14 ports, for video, audio, SD/microSD and ethernet, you should not have any trouble connecting multiple input devices or peripherals. The TBT3-UDZ is built around the Intel Titan Ridge chipset which enables dual Thunderbolt/USB-3 compatibility and makes it an interesting option for those using multiple types of laptops.
At 100W power delivery is the highest charging wattage to be implemented in the Plugable lineup line of docking stations which, according to the company, makes the TBT3-UDZ an ideal choice for users of some of Apple’s latest laptops, such as the 16″ MacBook Pro, which come with 96W chargers. The Plugable TBT3-UDZ will be available for $299 in spring 2020.
