The Past, Present, and Future is Yours
Three Thunderbolt ports and four USB ports empower you to connect to past, present and future devices. Up to two 4K displays or a 5K/6K/8K display, high-performance storage including NVMe SSDs, A/V mixers, phones, tablets, even desktop accessories like a keyboard or mouse. With the OWC Thunderbolt Dock, an entire world of USB and Thunderbolt accessories is ready for you to connect and expand your capabilities.
The Connect-it-all Solution
The latest Thunderbolt interface uses a universal USB-C connector to transfer data, output video, and charge devices through the same cable. The OWC Thunderbolt Dock’s Thunderbolt ports use that same USB-C connector to create a multi-connectivity solution for millions of existing and future Thunderbolt and USB-C computers and devices.
Reimagining the Daisy Chain
Daisy chains are perfect for connecting a lot of devices to a single port, but remove any device other than the last one and you're left with the hassle of disconnecting and reconnecting devices. The OWC Thunderbolt Dock lets you create three separate “tree branch” device chains, so you can remove devices from one chain without affecting or disconnecting the others. You can even add three Thunderbolt bus-powered devices.
Plug in Multiple Bus-Powered Thunderbolt Drives
In the past, daisy chaining external storage required you to place it close to the front of the chain to get fast, reliable performance. That wasn’t possible with bus-powered drives. They had to be placed last in the Thunderbolt chain… and the chain was limited to just one bus-powered device! Now, you can connect multiple portable SSDs directly to the OWC Thunderbolt Dock to experience the fastest speed your storage device can deliver!
Nothing can put you behind schedule like slow, low-quality Wi-Fi. Don’t settle for a sub-par connection. Plug your wired network into the OWC Thunderbolt Dock’s Gigabit Ethernet port for uninterrupted downloads, fast and reliable file transfers, secure network access, and increased productivity. The OWC Thunderbolt Dock’s IP-based connection facilitates collaboration on big team projects without worrying about your Wi-Fi connection.
SD Card Reader
Getting content to your computer is a necessity now that photo and video creation have become a part of daily life. Don’t waste time struggling with data transport. Transfer your creative files quickly, easily, and conveniently with the OWC Thunderbolt Dock’s SD card reader. You can also use the reader like an external drive to store or backup files at will with 312MB/s of speed at your fingertips.
A Higher Vision
The OWC Thunderbolt Dock’s Thunderbolt technology let you connect to a single 5K/6K/8K display or two 4K displays. Enjoy more precise and vivid details in graphic-intensive CAD drawings. Attend a video meeting on one screen while editing content on another screen. Up your Photoshop or Affinity Photo images up a notch. Edit large format video on one display, while previewing the raw playback on the other. Whatever your workstation display needs, the OWC Thunderbolt Dock gives you the vision to take it to the next level.

Disconnect in One Click
OWC Dock Ejector software safely disconnects multiple drives from the OWC Thunderbolt Dock in a single click. Designed by OWC hardware and software engineers, Dock Ejector ensures all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss. It makes losing your hard-earned work a thing of the past.
OWC’s free Dock Ejector app includes a special driver that enables your OWC Thunderbolt Dock to play and burn CDs and DVDs with the Apple SuperDrive. Just connect the SuperDrive to an open USB-A port on the OWC Thunderbolt Dock for bus power to watch a DVD movie, listen to music CDs, create a backup disk, and install the software.
Secure Your Workflow with OWC ClingOn
Active workspaces expose gear to bumps, shoves, and the random tail wag from a pet. Just one ill-timed touch can cause an accidental cable disconnection interruption to your workflow. OWC ClingOn custom cable stabilizers (sold separately) screw into the OWC Thunderbolt Hub’s housing to secure your Thunderbolt (USB-C) connections so you can work with confidence even in the highest foot traffic environments.
