Thunderbolt 4 hub
“Say “bye” to the days of not having enough Thunderbolt ports for all your devices. With the Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub, you can instantly turn one Thunderbolt port into three downstream ports, and you don’t have to deal with the hassle of bulky power bricks cluttering your workspace. With three Thunderbolt 4 downstream ports providing 40Gbps data transfer speeds, you’ll enjoy transferring a 4K movie in less than 30 seconds.”
With the assumption that the HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 hub crowd funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and the project progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around November 2022. To learn more about the HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 hub project checkout the promotional video below.
“Take advantage of 32Gbps PCIe data transfer speeds when connected to Thunderbolt enabled eGPUs. Get up to 8K 60Hz or 4K 144Hz single display support or dual 6K 60Hz display support on MST enabled devices. If you’re looking for maximum Thunderbolt 4 support, simply daisy chain two Power Hubs together for a total of five downstream ports. With three 15W downstream ports, enjoy charging all of your accessories. And, with 96W power delivery, enjoy keeping your host device fully charged.”
