The Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD has been refreshed to provide the new protocol's full 40 Gbps data speed, and provide 85W of charging power to the newly released late 2016 MacBook Pro.
The Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD retains much of the the same connectivity as previous generations, providing 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports with the USB-C connector, 3 USB 3.0 type A ports with 1.5A of charging power to downstream devices, one DisplayPort, one audio in or out port, one dedicated audio out port, and one Gigabit Ethernet port.
Belkin notes that the dock can drive a pair of 4K monitors at an undisclosed frequency, or a single monitor at 5K.
Power is provided to the device from a 170W power adapter, providing enough power to support attached peripherals while charging the connected MacBook Pro at full speed.
The Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD,Â and optional USB-C to HDMI adapter are coming soon, according to Belkin. Pricing has not yet been announced on either, but the Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock utilizing the older protocol and connector retails for $300.
