Development is an integral part of the evolution that happens. And fun fact is that evolution is not just limited to us humans. Technology evolves every single day. The only difference between human evolution and technology’s evolution is that ours is natural and that of technology is done only by us. Technology has certainly evolved. It all started when back in the day computers came to the market as a luxury for one to own. Sure, they were bulky and occupied a lot of space, but nothing compares to the comfort of owning a machine that can-do things for you. They evolved and hence, their size became smaller and smaller with time. And now, one can fit an entire computer in just their pockets.

One such accessory of PCs has also evolved; the connectors that connect the peripherals to the computer. They were large and gave the user too much work to do while connecting them. But then came USB that revolutionized the ports of a computer. Further going down the USB road, USB –B, mini-USB were released. Each one of them had more features than the other. However, the current USB preference is the USB Type-C which came in the market in late 2014. What makes it the most powerful USB of all time is that it is super-fast and universal.

Though many of the products still use mini USB and USB-A ports, it is certain that one day, every device will have only USB Type–C. But there is one problem that comes in the way of the universality of USB Type-C and that is when the PC production companies offer USB-C as the primary USB slot, they tend to cut all other ports like VGA, HDMI and in some cases, audio jack too. This may be a step towards lighter laptops but users like it when they have options. Hence, to get you rid of this problem HYPER has the perfect solution in the form of HyperDrive GEN2: Next Generation USB-C Hub. The USB-C Hub provides much more than anticipated in terms of looks and functionality. Moreover, it is fast, powerful, and packs in itself the minimalistic looks that fit in anywhere.

Problem Solving By Product

USB Type-C is tipped to be the universal USB type to be used in all devices all over the world. But the issue is, not many products have not inculcated the benefits of them and are still stuck with different kinds of connectors. The HyperDrive GEN2: Next Generation USB-C Hub makes it easier for the user to use their kind of connector with the help of a USB Type-C cable. It provides multi ports that offer speed and power, unlike many type-C converters. It is also a solution for all those who are tired of finding PCs or laptops with more ports to increase efficiency.

Detailed Description

The HyperDrive GEN2 USB Hub is a package that brings so much with it. Hence, the size of it doesn’t tell the whole story. The heir of the HyperDrive USB-C Hub for MacBook Pro has many features than its previous version. The former had a 4K 30Hz HDMI, a 104MB/s UHS-I MicroSD/SD, a 5GB/s USB Gen 1, and a 60-Watt USB C power delivery but now, the GEN2 has come up with more exciting features. The HyperDrive USB – C Hub packs a 4K 60Hz HDMI HDR video, 300MB/s UHS-II MicroSD/SD, and a 10GB/s USB-A Gen 2 port. What’s more exciting is that now, the GEN2 USB-C Hub can charge your device via a whopping 100W USB-C Power Delivery.

The devices that can be charged are laptops such as MacBook (any version), Microsoft Surface, and all other laptops that support charging via the USB Type–C extension. Unlike many other USB hubs that lower the speed of their respective ports by dividing it, the GEN2 USB-C Hub gives the user a 2X video refresh speed, 2X USB transfer speed (which is rare to find), 3 times the normal memory card transfer speed and 2 times the power.

The looks of the USB-C hub are simple. There is nothing fancy about the looks but the functionality that it offers. With the device comes a USB-C to USB-C cable which is compact and of enough length to keep the hub a little away from the PC or laptop. This makes sure that there is no tangling of cables whatsoever.

There are three versions that one can get of the HyperDrive GEN2 USB-C Hub. The basic model of the hub consists of 6 ports namely SD UHS-II, MicroSD UHS-II, 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A 10 Gbps, HDMI 4K 60Hz HDR, and USB-C with 100W power delivery. The 12 ports model contains additional ports like Gigabit Ethernet and Display Port 4k 60Hz. An upgrade to this version is the model with 18 ports with the likes of Quick charge USB-A, DC Power port, Digital Coaxial Audio, Optical Toslink Audio, and VGA.

The Hub is especially for smartphones and Apple devices but can be used on other devices too. The design is simple and the device is very much portable. The 18 port GEN2 Hub is the thickest, yet smaller than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Undoubtedly, it is the pick and use the device for any professional looking to increase their efficiency.

Plan For Launch

The campaign for HyperDrive GEN2: Next Generation USB-C Hub started on February 3, 2020, and lasted for a month. The production began in early March and was moved to Vietnam due to the COVID-19 situation.
