Plugable debuts new Thunderbolt 3 Dual Display Docking Station

Plugable, a developer of USB devices, has launched the Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C Dual Display Docking Station. 

Featuring the latest Titan Ridge Thunderbolt chipset, it allows users to connect devices with Thunderbolt 3 interfaces as well as compatible USB-C host devices to up to two external 4K DisplayPort displays while also providing 60W of charging. The Plugable TBT3-UDC1 is available now for US$179 on Amazon.com with a launch discount of $20 off for a limited time with coupon code TBT3UDC1 (valid until April 28, 11:59PM PT). 

With a single 0.8m Thunderbolt 3 cable supporting up to 40Gbps speeds, the folks at Plugable say users can experience uncompressed, high-quality displays using two 4K monitors at 60Hz each when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 host system. When using a USB-C capable host, the TBT3-UDC1 allows for two HD DisplayPort displays at 60Hz each.
