This cost-effective Thunderbolt™ 3 dock (without Power Delivery) supports your Thunderbolt 3 port equipped MacBook Pro or Windows® based laptop.

Merging performance with simplicity, this high-quality dock is a single-cable solution that caters to creative professionals such as video producers, graphic and web designers, engineers, architects, and many more.

Finish your work faster with Thunderbolt 3
You can quickly integrate the dock into your workspace and boost your productivity. With up to 40Gbps of throughput, you can add extra displays to your laptop, access files faster, and reduce waiting, so you can accomplish more in the same amount of time.

Thunderbolt 3 is the fastest connection available, and it supports multiple video channels and data, without impacting system performance. It’s easy to access and edit large uncompressed files such as videos and images on the fly.

Multitask at the highest resolution

If you need a larger, higher-resolution viewing area, this dock can help. You can connect two 4K Ultra HD displays, so it’s perfect for anyone working with high-bandwidth or graphics-intensive content.

The Thunderbolt 3 dock supports two 4K (3840 x 2160p or 4096 x 2160p) monitors through the DisplayPort and Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port (a USB-C video adapter might be required). For dual monitors, simply connect your DP monitor, and a second monitor through the dock’s extra Thunderbolt 3 port using an adapter such as the USB-C to DisplayPort Adapter Cable (CDP2DPMM1MB - sold separately) or using a USB-C based monitor. The Thunderbolt dock will also work with legacy displays, such as VGA monitors, when coupled with a USB-C to VGA adapter or DP to VGA adapter.

With support for two 4K monitors, the Thunderbolt dock makes it easier to multitask when you’re working with high-definition video or other complex work.

Connect your peripherals using only a single cable

Using the single Thunderbolt 3 cable (included) and a single port on your laptop, you can transform your macOS Sierra (or later) or Windows® 7 (or later) laptop into a full-size workstation with access to new and legacy technologies through a number of different port types. The dock is ideal for virtually all Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptops such as the Dell™ XPS 13, and the Apple MacBook Pro (2016).

The Thunderbolt 3 docking station features two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports for connecting to Thunderbolt devices and other peripherals that use the USB-C connector, as well as DisplayPort video output.

Convenient connections prepare you for the future
You can keep your mobile device charged and ready to go using the dock’s convenient, always-on USB fast-charge and sync port which supports USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2. The Thunderbolt 3 dock offers a variety of other connections that are often missing from port-limited laptops, such as an extra USB-C port (5Gbps - data only), and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

With three USB 3.0 ports in total, you have plenty of ports to connect modern and legacy devices. (USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1.) Now, you can rest assured knowing you’re ready for the current and next generation of universal connectivity.

The rear-panel DP and USB-C ports can be used with dual monitors that support lower resolutions, such as 4K at 30Hz or 1080p. StarTech.com offers a variety of USB-C video adapters, such as USB-C to HDMI and USB-C to VGA, which lets you connect a mixture of modern and legacy displays to the docking station.

*Lower resolutions are also supported.
*When connecting a display to one of the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, a USB-C video adapter may be required depending on the input of your display.

Certain monitors may be limited to 4K at 30Hz when connecting through DisplayPort. These monitors include the following models: Dell P2715Q, Viewsonic VX2475Smhl-4K, Philips 288P6LJEB, LG 31MU97C-B, Asus PB287Q (these models will need to be set to 4K at 30Hz).

The TB3DKDPMAW features a rugged aluminum casing, and is backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
