Since the launch of the first USB-C hubs 5 years ago, changes have been made only in the design area – unfortunately, the functions have remained unsurpassed...

Until now, when Hyper came up with a revolutionary novelty in the form of the 2nd generation of USB-C hubs – HyperDrive GEN2 with 2x more speed and 2x more power.

With HyperDrive GEN2 hubs you get:
• 4K@60Hz HDMI HDR (vs. 4K@30Hz HDMI on 1st generation of USB-C hubs)
• 300 MB/s UHS-II MicroSD/SD (vs. 104 MB/s UHS-I MicroSD/SD)
• 10 Gb/s USB-A Gen 2 (vs. 5 Gb/s USB-A Gen 1)
• 100 W USB-C Power Delivery (vs. 60 W USB-C PD)

In other words, you can enjoy 2x faster image recovery, 2x faster USB transfer, 3x faster memory card transfer and 2x Power Delivery performance.

HyperDrive GEN2 meets every need – from connecting mobile phones and tablets, through laptops and computers, to high-end audio and video editing. In addition, thanks to the long integrated cable, you will get rid of annoying knotted cables everywhere.

    The design supports the functionality of the hubs

    HyperDrive GEN2 is designed in a minimalist all-metal look that has won the Red Dot award. The ridges on the upper two thirds of the hub help to dissipate heat. The hubs are designed both for use in a vertical position (better heat dissipation) and horizontally.

    The most commonly used ports are located on the front of the hub, while the usually permanent connections are located on the back for better cable management.

    Useful tips

    Charging a connected USB-C device
  • After using the USB-C port on the iPad, connect it to at least a 30W charger (the hub draws 15W).
  • When an external power supply is connected, the hub supplies power to the USB-C device.
  • The hub draws 15W of power and the rest goes to the connected device, so for example, a 100W adapter is enough to charge a 16” MacBook Pro.

  • Powering hubs and cables
  • All 3 GEN2 hub models can be powered from the USB-C port of connected devices and they do not require an external power supply.
  • Hubs can also be powered from an external USB-C PD source.
  • An optional DC power supply can also be used with the GEN2 18port.
  • Specifications for a suitable adapter for 18 ports: 120 W DC, 20.5 V 5.85 A, 180 W DC, 21V 8.57 A.
  • The hub consumes 15 W of energy.
  • Built-in USB-C cables can handle 10 Gb / s data transfer and 100W power supply, so you can always take full advantage of all the parameters of the GEN2 hubs.

  • Video / display
  • Display protocol: DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3.
  • Mac OS supports Single Stream Transport (SST) – i.e. only 1 external display via 1 USB-C connection (2nd display mirrors the 1st display).
  • Windows OS supports Multi-Stream Transport (MST) – i.e. support for up to 3 external displays via 1 USB-C connection.
  • Maximum resolution of connected displays for Windows OS: 1 display - 4K60Hz; 2 displays - max. 2x 4K30Hz; 3 displays - 2x HDMI + DP, or 2x HDMI + VGA, max. 2x 4K30Hz + 720p, or 2x 1080p + 4K30Hz.
  • The maximum resolution for mirrored displays (Windows OS) is 4K60Hz for each of them.

  • Ports
  • Why only USB-A 2.0? USB-A 2.0 ports are intended for devices that do not require USB-A 3.1 speed. A 10 Gbps USB-A 3.1 Gen 2 port is also available for each USB-A 2.0 port.
  • USB-A QC 3.0 18 W only supports charging (not data transfer).

  • Compatibility
  • Apple – MacBook Pro with USB-C or iPad Pro with USB-C.
  • GEN2 hubs do not support Apple Super Drive (it has more requirements than any USB can provide).
  • Windows – with USB 3.2 Gen 2 (formerly 3.1 Gen 2) or higher support. With USB 3.2 Gen 1 (formerly 3.1 Gen 1) it will work but will not reach 10Gbps. 4K60hz resolution requires DisplayPort 1.4.
