Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station Turns Your MacBook or Other Notebook into a Workstation

This Thunderbolt 3 dock expands the potential of your MacBook or ThinkPad's Thunderbolt 3 port. It's ideal for transmitting digital 4K video to two large displays simultaneously, adding as many as five USB peripherals, recording a podcast, listening to music and connecting to a Gigabit Ethernet network-all at the same time.

Supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode for Transmitting Audio/Video Signals

By connecting the included Thunderbolt 3 cable to a source device that supports DisplayPort Alt Mode, you can output 4K video and digital audio to a compatible monitor, television or projector without installing special software drivers.

Thunderbolt 3 Supports Blisteringly Fast 40 Gbps Data Transfer Speeds

The included Thunderbolt 3 cable supports bidirectional speeds up to 40 Gbps, which is eight times faster than USB 3.0, four times faster than Thunderbolt 1 and twice as fast as Thunderbolt 2. With dual 20 Gbps channels moving data both directions at the same time, the MTB3-DOCK-02 is perfectly suited for 4K video streaming and editing on two monitors, as well as transferring large RAW video or CAD files.

DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (MST) Allows Connection of Multiple Displays

By connecting the included Thunderbolt 3 cable to a source that supports DisplayPort MST Mode, you may connect two displays simultaneously, so long as one of them is connected to the DisplayPort (DP) video port. Connect a DP monitor and an HDMI monitor or a DP monitor and a VGA monitor at the same time. This allows you to display the same image on both monitors, extend your host desktop across both with different windows open on each, or combine both into one large display as a video wall.

Transmits Crystal-Clear 4K Video and Digital Audio

The HDMI and DP outputs support true 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at 60 Hz. The VGA output supports HD resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) at 60 Hz. HDCP 2.2 compliance allows you to stream 4K Amazon and Netflix content with no complications.

USB Ports Connects Keyboards, Thumb Drives and Other USB Peripherals

Four USB-A hub ports and one USB-C port accept USB peripherals, such as flash drives, mice, keyboards, external hard drives and printers. The USB-C and two USB-A ports support fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps (10 times faster than USB 2.0) and are backward compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices. The other two USB-A ports support USB 2.0 speeds of 480 Mbps.

Accesses a Wired Gigabit Ethernet Network

The RJ45 port offers access to a Gigabit Ethernet network when no Wi-Fi is available or when a wired connection offers faster speeds. Connect using a UTP cable (sold separately), and enjoy true 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet speeds for fast data transfers.

Connects Stereo Audio Equipment for Recording and Playback

This Thunderbolt 3 docking station offers two 3.5 mm mini stereo jacks, convenient for connecting speakers, headphones or a microphone to your workstation. You can listen to music and record the latest episode of your podcast.

Included Thunderbolt 3 Cable Attaches in Either Direction

Unlike traditional USB cables that connect in only one direction, the reversible Thunderbolt 3 male connector plugs into its port in either direction for an instant connection every time.


  • Supports Thunderbolt 3 speeds up to 40 Gbps between compatible devices
  • Sends 4K video to 2 displays simultaneously for multitasking and increasing productivity
  • Supports UHD resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 (@ 60 Hz) for crystal-clear 4K x 2K video
  • Connects you to a wired 10/100/1000 Ethernet network when Wi-Fi is unavailable
  • Supports USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds up to 5 Gbps to ensure fast data downloads
  • 3-year limited warranty
