OWC unveiled an entire slate of new Thunderbolt 3 integrated products that it will demonstrate at CES 2018 in January. OWC, which will celebrate its 30th year in business in 2018, is a manufacturer of Mac and PC accessories that aims to upgrade the computing experience by offering a unique and all-encompassing array of computer accessories. The products will be on display in the company’s Palazzo Hotel suite throughout the show.
Their Thunderbolt 3 products accomplish those goals—something I can attest to, especially as a MacBook Pro user—by widely expanding the usable ports on a Mac or PC, all integrated into a single device.
In a statement, the company offered a brief overview of each of the new OWC Thunderbolt 3 products:
