HYPER today announced the HyperDrive “DUO PRO”, a 7-in-2 USB-C hub designed specifically for Apple’s latest advanced MacBook Pro models, which will be launched on Indiegogo with the first shipments due out in January.
HyperDrive DUO PRO has a Thunderbolt 4 / USB 4 port capable of data transfer at 40Gbps, 100W PD and 6K 60Hz video, an HDMI port with support for 4K 60Hz monitors, a 5Gbps USB-A port, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a 5 Gbps USB-C port, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a 104 MB / s MicroSD card reader. To maintain a sleek design, the Gigabit Ethernet port can be retracted.
The hub is available in Space Gray and Silver to match the finish of the MacBook Pro’s chassis. Although designed for the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models to match their side profile and avoid interfering with the MagSafe charging port, the DUO PRO also works with any MacBook from 2016 to 2020. With a universal USB-C adapter, DUO PRO is also compatible with all Chromebooks, PCs and iPads that have a USB-C port.
The DUO PRO has extended USB-C connectors that allow the hub to work with protective MacBook cases, and an optional adapter allows it to sit flat against MacBooks without a case. The DUO PRO also has HYPER’s magnetic grip so it can be securely attached to the MacBook.
HyperDrive DUO PRO 7-in-2 USB-C Hub is available for backup on Indiegogo now. Early backers will be able to get the DUO PRO hub for $ 49.99, which is half the final sale price.
