Satechi today announced the launch of two new accessories designed for Apple’s latest MacBooks, the USB-4 Multiport Adapter with 8K HDMI and the Pro Hub Max. Both of the new products are designed to expand the number of available ports for Apple’s MacBook models.
The USB-4 Multiport Adapter features an 8K HDMI port, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a USB-C PD charging port, three USB-A data ports that supports speeds of up to 10Gb/s, and micro/SD card readers. It supports 8K output at up to 60Hz, and Satechi says it has a design that’s meant to allow for better heat dissipation to prevent connected devices from overheating.

The Pro Hub Max is designed to plug into two of the USB-C ports on the side of one of Apple’s new MacBook Pro models.
The USB-4 Multiport Adapter with 8K HDMI is priced at $150, while the Pro Hub Max is priced at $100. Both will be available from the Satechi website in the near future.
