Plugable on Tuesday unveiled three new products at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. Leading the way is the TBT3-UDZ docking station which features 100-watt power delivery and some 14 connection ports.
The new TBT3-UDZ docking station is based on Intel’s “Titan Ridge” Thunderbolt 3 controllers and supports two DisplayPort 1.4 streams over a single Thunderbolt 3 connection.
Thanks to the Titan Ridge platform, users can add two external displays to a single Thunderbolt port, both of which can be 4K resolution at 60Hz each. For USB-C it supports two external displays up to 4K at 30Hz each.
Let’s talk about ports and connections, shall we? Plugable’s new dock offers 14 physical ports. If you’re looking to maximize space in an office, or go all-out with devices, you’ll love what’s in store.
