Belkin is targeting remote workers with its new Thunderbolt 3-enabled dock dubbed the Dock Core. It is the first such product on the market that the company says offers dual-powered functionality. According to Belkin, the Dock Core can use your laptops 60 W (min) power supply to send power back to the laptop itself over the USB-C PD port while also powering connected peripherals without the need for a separate power supply.

The Dock Core is also capable of support two 4K monitors at 60 Hz each or a single 5K monitor at 60 Hz as well. If you happen to have an 8K monitor handy, it will be able to drive it at 30 Hz.  The Dock Core is also fitted with several ports including a DisplayPort 1.4 an HDMI 2.0 port and Gigabit Ethernet connection. Also include are a USB-A 3.2 Gen 3 (10 Gbps) port, a USB-A 2.0 port as well as an audio in/out jack.

The Belkin Dock Core is compatible with both Macs and PCs equipped with a Thunderbolt 3 port. It is available now through Belkin’s webstore for US $170.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
