The high-quality dock merges performance with simplicity, to create a single-cable solution that caters to creative professionals such as video producers, graphic and web designers, engineers, architects, and many more.

Finish your work faster with Thunderbolt 3

You can quickly integrate the dock into your workspace and boost your productivity. With up to 40Gbps of throughput, you can add extra displays to your laptop, access files faster, and reduce waiting, so you can accomplish more in the same amount of time.

It’s the fastest connection available, and it supports multiple video channels and data, without impacting system performance. It’s easy to access and edit large uncompressed files such as videos and images on the fly, making it ideal for dynamic on-site production.

Performance advantage chart of Thunderbolt 3 vs other technologies

Multitask at the highest resolution

If you need a larger, higher-resolution viewing area, this dock can help. It’s one of the first docking stations to support two 4K Ultra HD displays, so it’s perfect for anyone working with high-bandwidth or graphics-intensive multimedia. And, unlike most traditional docking stations, the Thunderbolt 3 dock supports 4K resolutions (3840 x 2160p or 4096 x 2160p) at up to 60Hz when you use a single Thunderbolt 3 display. With a faster 60Hz refresh rate, your 4K content is delivered in stunning detail, even when you’re running resource-demanding applications.

You can extend your desktop onto two 4K monitors and stream independent content to each display. This makes it easier to multitask when you’re working with high-definition video, CAD drawings, medical imagery, or other complex work. Creative professionals can be more productive with the freedom to edit 4K video on one display, with a full-size video preview on the second 4K display.

Connect your peripherals with just a single cable

Using a single cable and a single port on your laptop, you can transform your Windows laptop into a full-size workstation with access to new and legacy technologies through a number of different port types. The dock is ideal for virtually all Windows based Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptops such as the Dell™ Precision, Dell XPS, Asus Zenbook Pro Ux501vw, HP Zbook 15 G3, and Lenovo P50.

The dock features two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports for connecting to Thunderbolt devices and other peripherals that use the USB-C connector, as well as DisplayPort video output. For dual 4K video capability, you can use a 4K capable video adapter to connect a second 4K display to one of the dock’s Thunderbolt 3 USB-C peripheral ports.

Convenient connections prepare you for the future

You can keep your mobile device charged and ready to go using the dock’s convenient, always-on USB fast-charge and sync port (compliant with USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2). Plus, it offers a variety of other connections that are often missing from port-limited laptops, such as an extra USB-C port (5Gbps - data only), and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

With three total USB 3.0 ports, you have plenty of ports to connect modern and legacy devices. (USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1). Now, you can rest assured knowing you’re ready for the current and next generation of universal connectivity.

The rear-panel DP and USB-C port can be used with dual monitors that support lower resolutions, such as 4K 30Hz or 1080p. Now you can connect dual monitors using new and legacy displays. StarTech.com offers a variety of USB-C video adapters, such as HDMI and VGA.
