Corsair has taken the wraps off of the new Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock, intended to cover most or all of the connections a Mac owner might want, and for the first time provide three USB-C downstream ports in one dock.

On the rear the dock is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 connections, Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort, a 3.5mm audio jack, and two USB 3.1 type C ports running at 10-gigabit Gen 2 speeds. The front is equipped with two 5-gigabit USB 3.0 type A gen 1 ports, plus a headset jack and a UHS-II-capable SD/microSD slot.

The dock can handle twin 4K displays via DisplayPort and Thunderbolt 3, Elgato said. Using just the free Thunderbolt 3 connection, it supports resolutions up to 5,120 by 2,880.

On Macs the accessory has its own menu bar utility, which can eject the dock and all connected storage simultaneously.

The Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock can be preordered from Corsair or Amazon for just under $350. A ship date is unavailable.
