A Kickstarter campaign for the HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub has begun for US customers. The device can transfer data at up to 40 Gbps and supports connection to two displays simultaneously. Three 50 W downstream Thunderbolt 4 ports are available, with a fourth 96 W PD fast-charging port.

The HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The company claims the gadget is the world's first Thunderbolt 4 hub with a built-in GaN power source. The device is compatible with many Mac, PC and iPad Pro models and other Thunderbolt 4, Thunderbolt 3, USB4 and USB-C gadgets.

First unveiled at CES, the hub has been designed for a cleaner desk set-up, with three downstream Thunderbolt 4 ports. These ports have a maximum power of 50 W, and the fourth port has 96 W PD fast-charging abilities. The ports can transfer data at speeds up to 40 Gbps, which the company suggests will allow you to transfer a movie in 4K in under 30 seconds.

The gadget also has two times better graphics performance compared to other models, with 32 Gbps PCIe transfer speeds when connected to Thunderbolt-enabled eGPUs. The mains-powered device supports a single 8K display at 60 Hz or 4K at 144 Hz. Plus, dual 6K 60 Hz displays are supported for MST-enabled devices; it's worth noting that dual displays are not compatible with the M1 or M2 MacBooks.

You can currently receive the HyperDrive Thunderbolt 4 Power Hub when you pledge US$179 to the campaign. The gadget is expected to retail for US$299.99 in the future, meaning the device is presently available with a 40% discount. It's worth noting that the company only plans to ship to the US, with deliveries expected in November.
