Glyph has launched a self-named Thunderbolt 3 Dock, its key selling point being compatibility with NVMe SSDs for fast data storage and transfer.

Attached NVMe drives can transfer at speeds up to 1.5 gigabytes per second, Glyph says. The dock itself includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports, supplying up to 87 watts of power — enough to recharge high-end MacBook Pros.

Other connections include DisplayPort 1.2, gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, and one 10-gigabit USB-C port. Mic and speaker outputs are also present. The NVMe M.2 drive is connected by way of an internal bay.
