News: OWC Launches New Hub for Thunderbolt 4 PCs
This is OWC‘s new Thunderbolt 4 Hub. With its three Thunderbolt ports, it allows you to unplug one set of daisy-chained accessories without affecting the other two. You can connect everything from:
- Dual 4K displays or a single 5K/6K/8K display
- high-performance storage–including NVMe solutions
- A/V mixers
- phone or tablet
- desktop accessories (like keyboards/mice)
It’s a high-speed command center, which is great for people who move a lot of data (like videos and photos). It’s also great for support techs who need to back up often, cutting down on transfer time.

“As a leader in Thunderbolt integration and accessories, OWC is proud to lead the market and offer our first Thunderbolt 4 hub for the new 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor-based PCs.”, said Larry O’Connor, CEO and Founder of OWC. “In addition to giving users the ability to expand the number of Thunderbolt ports they have access to, the new ability to create separate chains, and connect more devices from individual computer ports will revolutionize workflows.”
Daisy chains can be complex. In the past, removing any device besides the last one in a daisy chain caused a disruption that rendered all devices unusable until the chain was re-established. OWC’s Thunderbolt Hub lets you create a separate multi-port accessory architecture consisting of three “tree branch” chains, so you can remove devices from one chain without affecting or disconnecting the others. Now you can connect multiple portable SSDs directly to the OWC Thunderbolt Hub to experience the fastest speed your storage device can deliver.
Pricing & Availability
The OWC Thunderbolt Hub is available in the EU for pre-order through MacSales.com for $149.00 and will begin shipping in late October.
