The speed of Thunderbolt 3 has revolutionised computing for photographers and videographers alike. The ultra-fast transfer speeds brought by Thunderbolt 3 technology is of course just the start, and with the latest Intel 11th, Gen Core and Evo PCs equipped with Thunderbolt 4 those transfer speeds are about to take another leap forward.
Getting ready for this evolution is the OWC Thunderbolt which joins the existing range of Thunderbolt 3 Docks; Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock, Thunderbolt 3 14-port Dock, and Thunderbolt 3 Mini Dock.
The new OWC Thunderbolt Dock features four Thunderbolt ports, four USB ports, SD Card slot, Gigabit Ethernet, and a combo audio in/out.
This enables you to plugin multiple drives and devices and then connect to your Mac or PC with a single cable.
For photographers and videographers on the move, this can be a major timesaver and will help you searching through all those cables on your desk for the right ones to connect when you get back to the studio.
The OWC Thunderbolt Doc makes the most of the latest Thunderbolt technology and fully compatible with Thunderbolt 3 solutions.
