Plugable announced the TBT3-UDC3 docking station, a high-wattage successor to the TBT3-UDC1 docking station. The TBT3-UDC3 features 100W (96W certified) power and a long list of ports. It supports Gigabit Ethernet, has a bandwidth of 40Gbps, and can drive two 4K 60Hz displays at once. The Plugable TBT3 UDC3 docking station is available now for $219.
The docking station has two USB-C ports that support transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps. It also has gigabit Ethernet, a DisplayPort, an HDMI port, a 10Gbps USB-A port, two USB 3.0 ports, and an audio in/out port. The “100W” charging of the docking station is done through an additional Thunderbolt 3 port. Note that while Plugable states that the docking station supports 100W charging, that it specifies that it is only 96W certified.
Being 96W certified is important because some new laptops, such as the 16-inch MacBook Pro, can utilize the quick charging of 96W. According to Plugable, the TBT3-UDC3 docking station can charge a 16-inch MacBook Pro in just 110 minutes.
With support for dual 4K displays at 60Hz, the Plugable TBT3-UDC3 should be able to power the desk setups of creative and professional users.
The docking station uses an Intel Titan Ridge Chipset and works with Thunderbolt 3, USB4, and Thunderbolt 4, which makes it relatively future proof.
