The connected docks market Thunderbolt 3 It's increasingly populated, but one option still has few reps: peripherals that include internal storage (or the ability to add it) so you can expand your Mac's ability to store files. The manufacturer Glyph has recently introduced such a creation.
O (appropriately named) Thunderbolt 3 Dock from the manufacturer brings all that users could want from such an accessory: two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one DisplayPort, two USB 3.0, one USB-C 3.1 and one Ethernet, plus analog audio input and output, and an SD card reader. The cat leap? In addition, we have support here for an NVMe SSD that may already be installed at the time of purchase or added by the user himself later.
The accessory saves no one in terms of speed: it can offer read speeds of up to 1,500MB / s. In addition, the device's Thunderbolt 3 ports can charge your Mac at up to 87W maximum power supported by today's 15-inch MacBooks Pro.
For those who just want a storage solution without the extra benefits of a dock, Glyph has also announced the Atom Pro NVMe SSD which, as the name implies, simply an external drive equipped with Thunderbolt 3 and NVMe SSDs. It is capable of speeds up to 2.8GB / s (read) and 2.4GB / s (write), perfect for video professionals working with 8K or virtual reality files.
The Thunderbolt 3 Dock starts from $ 300 no SSD installed; versions with built-in storage range from 500GB ($ 400) and 2TB ($ 700). Atom Pro, in turn, also has versions between 500GB ($ 300) and 2TB ($ 1,000).
