CES 2018 bug Mobile computing accessories company Targus has used CES to debut its new Thunderbolt 3 dock, a model that is aimed at multi-platform users.

Letting you plug in two ultra high-definition computer monitors, the DOCK220USZ dock boasts a whole lot of ports. These include a pair of USB-C outlets, along with a full-sized DisplayPort, twin USB 3.0 type A ports, audio in and out, and one Gigabit Ethernet port.

In terms of power delivery, the dock is able to offer up to 85W, making it suitable for the 15-inch MacBook Pro. It is designed to work with macOS, Windows, and Ubuntu Desktop Linux.

“We’re thrilled to add a new dock to our lineup that’s a brand new Thunderbolt 3 dock,” said Andrew Corkill, Vice President of Product Marketing for Targus, in a statement. “Unlike any other Thunderbolt 3 dock on the market today, DOCK220USZ works with any platform, including macOS and Windows. It’s designed to work in Mac environments like design studios and video agencies as well as in mixed-laptop-inventory environments.”

The DOCK220USZ is most likely to appeal to designers, animators and engineers: anyone who will enjoy and benefit from the combination of speed and 4K-sharp resolution. It’s available in space gray and has a small footprint of just 5 inches in width and 3.2 inches depth. With its compact design and extruded aluminum housing, the $349.99 device should fit in nicely among your Apple products.
