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 writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
