OWC Digital, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, launched a trio of products featuring Thunderbolt 3 technology at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
These soon-to-be released products will take advantage of the new capabilities found in Thunderbolt 3 technology, promising faster, more versatile connections. Thunderbolt 3 doubles available bandwidth to 40 Gbps, cuts power consumption in half, and can simultaneously drive two external 4K UHD displays.
The OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock offers convenience and flexibility with its 12 ports, which now include a high-power USB 3.1 Gen 1 port for fast mobile device charging, a mini DisplayPort with support for a high-res display up to 4K at 60 Hz, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
With the introduction of Thunderbolt 3 technology, the new OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock can support two high-res 4K displays at 60 Hz, extensive connectivity with daisy-chain, and power delivery, for a more streamlined workflow.
Concurrent with the Thunderbolt 3 Dock, OWC announced that the award-winning Envoy Pro EX will be one of the first external storage solutions to integrate Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, making the enclosure faster and more powerful. Achieving scorching-fast data transfer rates of more than 1 GB/s, the portable device houses a PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSD, handling virtually any storage or backup need.
The next generation in the OWC Mercury Helios lineup, and accommodating a double-width, half-length x16 PCIe card, the Helios 3 expansion card is hot-pluggable, powers on and off with a computer and is designed for high-res video ingest cards and other PCIe connectivity solutions needed to ensure seamless productivity. Built from a rugged aluminum chassis with a dedicated cooling fan, the PCIe expansion chassis features two Thunderbolt 3 ports for optimal performance.
