Jan 11, 2024 | Woodstock, IL


Other World Computing® – the leading end-to-end ecosystem solution provider of computer hardware, accessories, and software for both consumers and professionals – demonstrated three new cutting-edge Thunderbolt™ 5 devices at CES and Pepcom - two state-of-the-art multiport docks and a bus-powered portable storage solution - all powered by the latest Thunderbolt technology from Intel.

For over a decade, OWC has led the way in creating innovative Thunderbolt solutions by offering more Thunderbolt products than most other manufacturers. This tradition continues with solutions designed to harness the lightning-fast data transfer rates and high-resolution display support of Thunderbolt 5. The new docking and storage solutions will quickly become the focal point for user's computer setups and workflows.

"We've been at the forefront, embracing new Thunderbolt technologies early on, and take pride in providing the most extensive range of Thunderbolt solutions globally," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO of OWC. "Introducing Thunderbolt 5 to our customers is an exciting venture, enabling us to create even more innovative products."

These new products leverage the innovations of Thunderbolt 5 technology from Intel. Users benefit from double the bandwidth for connected devices, achieving data transfer rates of up to 80Gbps. Enhanced by Bandwidth Boost, display possibilities expand up to 120Gbps, providing ample bandwidth to stream to multiple 8K displays or three 4K displays running at 144Hz. Thunderbolt 5 also delivers up to 240W of available charging power to connect devices—all through a single, flippable, reversible cable.

“Thunderbolt™ 5 will provide creators and gamers the industry leading performance and capability for connecting PCs to accessories that they demand,” said Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel Corporation. “The innovative new docking and storage solutions displayed by OWC at CES showcase how Thunderbolt 5 will revolutionize the way users approach their work.”
