THUNDERBOLT 3 AND USB-C DUAL DISPLAY DOCK (TBT3-UDZ) – UPDATE

UPDATE 9/30/20: Covid19 continues to disrupt global supply chains and logistics, and we’ve encountered multiple delays that unfortunately have affected our intended launch schedule. In addition to continued international shipping delays for all goods, increased online shopping has caused massive delays with units checking in to Amazon and other distribution centers. (Products that used to be available within 5-7 days are now taking 2-4 weeks.) Factoring in these unpredictable delays as best we can, our anticipated launch window for North America is early November. The window for release in Europe is unclear, but we will update this post as we learn new information.

We’re of course disappointed by these delays, but also excited to be in the home stretch. Apologies for any frustrations, and thank you for your patience!

At CES 2020 we announced our flagship Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C Docking Station, the TBT3-UDZ. This dock’s exclusive design allows users to connect up to 2 additional 4K displays using either HDMI or DP without the need of external adapters – the first Thunderbolt 3 docking station to offer this functionality.

The TBT3-UDZ is built upon the latest Intel Titan Ridge chipset, enabling the widest compatibility with Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C laptops on the market. Its dual connectivity removes frustrations from having to pick a docking station for either type of laptop while delivering unrivaled performance.

After months of supply chain disruptions and finalizing product features we are excited to share some new updates!

Based on customer feedback, we’ve updated our design to include an extra USB-C 10Gbps port on the front of the dock for easy access. USB-C peripherals are more common now than ever before and we want to make sure that TBT3-UDZ allows you to connect all of your devices.

To ensure compliance with IEC power regulations, we’ve updated the dock to provide 96W to the host device. The small change to 96W will not negatively affect any laptop charging behavior and will allow customers to purchase the docking station worldwide. With Apple also releasing laptops with 96W chargers, such as the new 16” MacBook Pro, the TBT3-UDZ is the best docking station to pair with these devices for unrivaled performance.

The TBT3-UDZ has passed Thunderbolt 3 certification and is in its final stages before launch. We are expecting the dock to be available globally in September. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we navigate the effects of the pandemic, while also working to bring you a top of the line Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C dock.
