Thursday, January 5th, 2017 LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Sanho Corporation (CES 2017 LVCC South Hall 4 Booth 35537) – manufacturer of the HYPER line of Apple and mobile accessories – will demonstrate at the Consumer Electronic Show 2017, a fully functional production unit of the HyperDrive which is currently raising over $900K and counting on Kickstarter. HyperDrive is a unique Thunderbolt 3 USB-C dongle specifically designed for the 2016 MacBook Pro. It is the first dongle in the market to utilizes two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports on the MacBook Pro to deliver the fastest 50Gbps bandwidth across 7 ports (HDMI, Thunderbolt 3, USB-C, microSD, SD, 2 x USB 3.1), virtually restoring all the ports found on the previous 2015 MacBook Pro model. The 50Gbps bandwidth allows all 7 ports to be used simultaneously, including connecting to a 5K Thunderbolt 3 Display and a 4K HDMI display at the same time. The Thunderbolt 3 port on the HyperDrive also supports up to 100W power delivery allowing the user can charge the MacBook Pro at full speed while using the HyperDrive. Despite its prowess and number of ports, HyperDrive occupies the smallest of footprint. Its highly portable compact size allows the HyperDrive to attach to the side of the MacBook Pro without any cables or obstruction, allowing the user to always have access to all ports at all times without the need to carry multiple cumbersome dongles. The same HyperDrive works perfectly with both 13” and 15” 2016 MacBook Pro.
“This is the adapter that Apple should have provided with the 2016 MacBook Pro to ensure backward compatibility with current non USB-C devices,” said Daniel Chin, CEO of Sanho Corporation. “Our vision was to create a dongle that replaces all other dongles, with all the popular ports from the previous MacBook Pro model, in the most portable form factor so that every 2016 MacBook Pro user will want to use it,” he added. “And we want to make it very affordable for everyone to bring usability back to their new 2016 MacBook Pro, which is why we are launching the HyperDrive via Kickstarter,” he concluded.
