Plugable releases TBT3-UDC3 Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C docking station with 100W PD
There are so many docks and docking stations nowadays, that it can be hard to get excited about them. Look, I get it, they all pretty much do the same thing -- turn your laptop into a desktop while also charging it. The thing is, not all of them are created equally. In fact, some are much better than others.
With all of that said, Plugable has a new docking station that is worth your attention. Called "TBT3-UDC3," it is compatible with both Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C computers thanks to its use of Intel's Titan Ridge chipset. What makes this port so intriguing (beyond its 11 ports) is its 100 watts of power delivery and affordable price -- especially with a limited time coupon.
"The TBT3-UDC3 offers higher wattage than the TBT3-UDC1 at 100W (96W certified) and upgraded, flexible video connectivity with 1x HDMI and 1x DisplayPort, while also including a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter for users who want to connect two HDMI monitors. The new dock has the ability to extend dual 4K 60Hz displays, connect two USB-C peripherals and three USB-A peripherals, and is compatible with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 laptops – all while charging laptops at the highest certified wattage on the market," explains Plugable.
The company further says, "TBT3-UDC3 provides a full 40Gbps bandwidth so users can extend dual 4K 60Hz displays when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 laptop. Using the Intel Titan Ridge chipset, the laptop dock provides more comprehensive compatibility options with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 hosts, to the next generation of Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 systems allowing many users to connect single or dual 4K 60 displays with no drivers required."
