Targus launches new superfast Thunderbolt 3 docks
The US-based mobile accessory specialist Targus has announced the availability of two new Thunderbolt 3 docks, suited for high-resolution graphics – and able to meet the powerful demands of creative professionals and studios.
“We’ve designed our DOCK215 and DOCK222 to meet the demanding needs of professional content creators,” said David Dorantes, director of product marketing, Targus. “With features like Thunderbolt 3 speed, up to 8K resolution, dual-monitor support, and a compact design, both docks enable creatives to stay connected, powered, and productive.”
The Thunderbolt 3 DV4K Docking Station with 85W Power Delivery (DOCK215USZ) connects a laptop to dual 4K UHD monitors at 60hz or a single 8K HDR monitor at 30hz. It comes with two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports, as well as two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port to accommodate workspace peripherals like a mouse and keyboard, hard drive, and more. Its compact design also ensures it won’t take up precious desk space for working essentials.
It even comes equipped with a VESA bracket mounting provision, which allows for use of the Targus VESA Mount Bracket (ACX003GLZ – sold separately) to hold the dock behind the display for even greater space savings.
For even greater power delivery and more ports, the Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station with 96W Power Delivery (DOCK222USZ) is equipped with Thunderbolt speed, high-resolution graphics, and multiple ports to meet the most demanding requirements of today’s professional content creators and studios.
It connects to dual 4K UHD monitors at 60hz or a single 8K HDR monitor at 30hz. It also offers multiple ports — two USB-C ports (one front-facing USB 3.2 Gen 2 and one rear-facing Thunderbolt 3 downstream port), five USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports (one which is fast-charging), and one SD Card port — to accommodate essential workspace peripherals like a mouse, keyboard, hard drive, and more.
The DOCK222 ships with a Targus USB-C to DisplayPort Alternate Mode Adapter (ACA968GLX) to connect a second external DisplayPort monitor to MacBooks not supporting MST. It is also equipped with a VESA bracket mounting provision, allowing use of the Targus VESA Mount Bracket (ACX003GLZ – sold separately) to hold the dock behind the display for greater space savings.
