Thunderbolt 3 docks may have been slow to roll out but the market is picking up pace now, with Targus throwing their hat in the ring with a new offering aimed at multi-platform users.

The DOCK220USZ packs more ports than letters in its model number. Twin USB-C outlets are paired with a full-sized DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 type A ports, audio in and out, and one Gigabit Ethernet port.

Targus's new dock is capable of driving two 4K monitors at 60Hz, with one monitor on DisplayPort, and the other with a USB-C to DisplayPort cable plugged into the downstream Thunderbolt 3 port.

Targus says the dock can also provide up to 85W of power to connected devices, suitable for the 15-inch MacBook Pro.

The dock is available in Space Gray and the dock itself has a small footprint measuring just 5 inches wide and 3.2 inches deep. Interested buyers can pick up the dock, with model number DOCK220USZ, now for $349.99.
