SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Cable MattersÂ®, an industry-leading supplier of connectivity solutions, today launched a new all-in-one Thunderboltâ¢ 3 and USB-CÂ® docking station, solving a costly compatibility problem in the docking station market. The new Cable Matters Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station with Dual 4K DisplayPortâ¢ & 60W Power Delivery takes advantage of a dedicated chipset to seamlessly switch between full Thunderbolt 3 mode and USB-C mode depending on the capability of the host device.
Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C share the same plug form factor but are very different technologies. Thunderbolt 3 boasts 40Gbps of high-speed bandwidth â up to four times as much bandwidth as USB-C only. Until now, Thunderbolt 3 docking stations were only compatible with laptops with Thunderbolt 3. Consumers searching for an all-in-one solution for multiple devices either compromised with a slower device or purchased two docking stations.
Taking advantage of the Intel Titan Ridge, the docking station detects if the connected host supports Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C only, and automatically switches its operation mode to accommodate either connection. This solution allows consumers to use the docking station with a high-performance laptop with Thunderbolt 3 ports, and their USB-C devices.
The docking station features two DisplayPort ports for connecting external monitors, two USB-C ports for connecting smartphones and USB-C devices, three USB-A ports for connecting flash drives, mice, and other peripherals, a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting headphones or a headset, and a Gigabit Ethernet port for wired network access. One USB-A and the two USB-C ports support speeds of up to 10Gbps, while previous Thunderbolt 3 docking stations were limited to 5Gbps USB ports. The host USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 connector features Power Delivery support, which can charge the host device with up to 60W of power.
The Cable Matters Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station with Dual 4K DisplayPort & 60W Power Delivery is now available for purchase at cablematters.com.
