CalDigit now offers the Pro Dock, a multiport USB-C hub that can drive a pair of 4K displays at a full 60Hz. There are plenty of hubs that let a MacBook connect to a single monitor, but this dual-screen option is more rare.
The Pro Dock also has a trio of USB-A ports, Ethernet, and other ports.

MacBooks and others with a Thunderbolt 3 port can take full advantage of the pair of DisplayPort 1.2 ports. According to Apple, that includes:
- MacBook Pro introduced in 2016 or later
- MacBook Air introduced in 2018
- iMac introduced in 2017 or later
iMac Pro (all models)
- Mac mini introduced in 2018
Other computers with just a USB-C can still hook up a pair of screens but only at HD resolution, according to CalDigit.
Rival accessory-maker Satechi offers its own dual-monitor adapter. This can power a pair of 4K HDMI screens at 60Hz, and doesn’t require Thunderbolt 3. It does take up two USB-C ports, however.

In addition, the CalDigit Pro Dock offers three USB 3.2 Type-A ports, Gigabit Ethernet, an SD card reader, and a 3.5mm headset jack. There’s also a Thunderbolt 3 port to connect to the host computer with 85W of charging, as well as a data-only USB-C 10Gb/s port.
This multiport hub is available now. On the CalDigit website the regular price is $249.95, but there’s a special lowering the cost to $199.95.
