Plugable taps into the speed and power of Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 with three new products. First, Plugable’s new Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 Hub with 60W Charging (TBT4-HUB3C) sets the standard for what you should expect from a next-gen hub. Next, our new 1m Passive (TBT4-40G1M) and 2m Active (TBT4-40G2M) Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 cables deliver the data, power, and video (and what’s the difference between active and passive, anyway?).

A Heck of a Hub

The Plugable Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 Hub with 60W Charging (TBT4-HUB3C) delivers an experience that you won’t find anywhere else. So what does that actually mean? It means every single port is Thunderbolt 4 certified. It means all of your devices—Thunderbolt 4, USB4, Thunderbolt 3, or USB-C—will automatically work at their peak potential as supported by the host. And most importantly, it ships with the latest certified firmware to ensure the performance you expect is the performance you get.  

Built to perform, the TBT4-HUB3C has data transfer speeds up to 40Gbps, 60W charging, support for dual 4K monitors or a single 8K display, and because it’s from Plugable, you can rest assured that it was built and tested to the highest quality standards.

Riding the Ridge

You didn’t buy a high-performance laptop to settle for a low-performance hub. The TBT4-HUB3C is built on the Intel Goshen Ridge Chipset. And while you might not be in the habit of paying attention to the chips in your hub, this one is a little different. For starters, it’s the only chipset that gives you both USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 functionality.

Leveraging the flexibility of the Goshen Ridge chip, the TBT4-HUB3C instantly and automatically adapts to your computer. Connecting to an M1 Mac? Get a one-cord connection to a 4K display, and two Thunderbolt 3 SSDs—each reaching transfer speeds of 40Gbps. Switching to a Dell XPS with Thunderbolt 4 ports? Use the same one-cord connection for identically fast results, or swap one of the SSDs for a second 4K display. The seamless compatibility goes in reverse, too. On older USB-C systems, the TBT4-HUB3C adjusts to deliver the maximum capability and performance supported by your laptop.

The Plugable Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 Hub has a few other notable features. Features like 60W charging so the port on your computer that would have been sacrificed to a power cord now has room for power and three peripherals. The included USB-C to HDMI 2.0 adapter simplifies connecting an additional monitor, and the included 80cm/2.6ft Thunderbolt 4 cable gives you more flexibility to set up your desk. But the feature you’ll enjoy the most—even if you never realize it—is stability. That’s because this Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 hub ships with the latest firmware from Intel for improved performance, quality, and compatibility versus other Thunderbolt 4 hubs.

Capable Cables

Often overlooked, the cables connecting our computers to their peripherals have an important part to play. That’s why our TBT4-40G1M and TBT4-40G2M cables are Thunderbolt certified—it’s the only way to ensure you’re getting complete compatibility and reliability. That means data transfer speeds up to 40Gbps and 100W 20V/5A Power Delivery. and backward compatibility with previous generations of Thunderbolt and USB.

What Isn’t It?

Thunderbolt 4 or USB4, which is it (and what’s the difference)? Both. And a little more. The hub and the cables are Thunderbolt 4 certified, and that comes with some incredible benefits. That means every port on the TBT4-HUB3C will automatically operate as a USB-C, Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4, or USB4 port based on the capabilities built-in to the host computer. And it means that even at 2 meters, you won't see a decrease in performance across the cables.
