More Ports for a World of Possibilities
For the first time ever, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you consolidate and simplify the connectivity between all your devices with all the Thunderbolt ports you’ve always wanted. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub’s four Thunderbolt (USB-C) ports and one USB port massively expand your connection possibilities. Now you can do more, effortlessly on your Apple M1 Mac, any Apple ‘Intel’ Mac with Thunderbolt 3, or any Thunderbolt 4 PC. You can also use the OWC Thunderbolt Hub with non-Thunderbolt USB-C machines like Chromebooks and iPads too.
One Hub to Connect Them All
Through a single Thunderbolt port on your Mac or PC1, you can connect and charge nearly anything with this compact hub. Up to two 4K displays or a single 5K/6K/8K display, high performance storage—including NVMe solutions, A/V mixers, a phone or tablet, even desktop accessories like a keyboard or mouse are all fair game. Accessories with past, present, or future USB or Thunderbolt interfaces… all connect to the OWC Thunderbolt Hub.
Reinventing the Chain
Daisy chains can be complex. Removing any device besides the last one will cause a disruption that renders all devices unusable until the chain is re-established. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you create three separate “tree branch” chains, so you can remove devices from one chain without affecting or disconnecting the others. You can even take things up a notch by adding three bus-powered Thunderbolt devices.
When the latest Thunderbolt appeared on Macs and PCs, it used a USB-C connector to transfer data, output video, and charge devices through the same cable. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub’s Thunderbolt 4 ports use that same USB-C connector, creating a multi-connectivity solution that works on 100’s of millions of existing and future Thunderbolt-based computers and devices. And, the ports are fully USB4 future compatible.
iPads & Chromebooks Too
The OWC Thunderbolt Hub also functions as a USB-C hub for expanding the device connectivity of USB-C equipped machines like iPads and Chromebooks. Now you can add USB devices like a keyboard, mouse, drive, and even a bigger display with a USB-C adapter (sold separately).
Unleash Drive Performance
In the past, daisy chaining external storage required you to place it as close to the front of the chain for the fastest and most reliable performance. That wasn’t possible with bus-powered drives. They had to be placed last in the Thunderbolt chain…and the chain was limited to just one bus-powered device! Now you can connect multiple portable SSDs directly to the OWC Thunderbolt Hub.
A Higher Vision
Thanks to its Thunderbolt technology, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you connect a single 5K/6K/8K display, or up to two 4K displays. Enjoy more precise, vivid details in graphic-intensive apps. Edit large format video on one display, while previewing the raw playback on the other. Attend a video meeting while editing content on another screen. Whatever your workstation display needs, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub gives you the connectivity you need to execute your vision.
Keep The Power Flowing
It’s about time someone invented a hub that works as hard as you do. Whether you’re taking a short break or are done for the day, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub keeps you powering ahead. It doesn’t matter if your machine goes into sleep mode…the Thunderbolt 4 and USB ports continue to power and/or charge connected devices.
Disconnect In One Click
Safely disconnect multiple drives in a single click. OWC Dock Ejector was designed by OWC hardware and software engineers to ensure all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss. It makes losing your hard-earned work a thing of the past.
Apple Superdrive Ready
OWC’s free Dock Ejector software also includes a special driver that enables your OWC Thunderbolt Hub to play and burn CDs and DVDs with the Apple SuperDrive. Just connect the SuperDrive to an open USB-A port on the OWC Thunderbolt Dock for bus power to watch a DVD movie, listen to music CDs, create a backup disk, and install software.
Secure Your Workflow with OWC ClingOn
Active workspaces expose your gear to bumps, shoves, or even the random tail wag from a pet. Just one ill-timed touch can cause an accidental cable disconnection, and an interruption to your workflow. The OWC ClingOn custom cable stabilizers (sold separately) screw into the OWC Thunderbolt Hub’s housing to secure your Thunderbolt (USB-C) connections so you can work with confidence even in the highest foot traffic environments.

- Works with Thunderbolt 4, Thunderbolt 3, USB4, and USB host computers and mobile devices. Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 Mac models are supported via USB-A host connection. Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 host connection is not supported.
– With a USB host (such as a USB-C equipped MacBook, iPad, Chromebook, Android device, or PC), this device works as a USB hub. Bandwidth is reduced to USB speeds, Thunderbolt devices are not supported, and additional functionality will vary depending upon the host port’s capabilities.
– With a USB-C host, displays and power delivery support will depend upon the host port’s capabilities.
– With a USB-A host, displays and power delivery are not supported. Requires a USB-C to USB-A adapter (available separately).
- Works with Thunderbolt (USB-C), Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 (mDP), and USB devices. Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 (mDP) device support requires a certified Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 (mDP) adapter and a Thunderbolt 2 cable (available separately) and provides data transfer at up to 20Gb/s.
- Dual display support, including available resolution and refresh rates, is dependent on host hardware and drivers.
