Second-generation HyperDrive USB-C Hub comes with double the speed and power

Six-port, 12-port, and 18-port variants of the HyperDrive Gen2 USB hub. Phone for scale.

Hyper, a company by Sanho Corporation that's known for its USB hubs, just made their crowdfunded HyperDrive Gen2 6-in-1 USB-C Hub available for general retail.

According to the company, the HyperDrive Gen2 has 4K, 60Hz HDR video output, USB 3.1 Gen 2 transfer speeds, compatibility with UHS-II MicroSD and SD cards at 300MB/s, on top of 100W USB-C Power Delivery support. That's double the speed and power in nearly all aspects when compared to its first-generation model, except for its PD profile (first-gen was rated at 60W).

The HyperDrive Gen2 netted a few million dollars in backing from its Indiegogo and Kickstarter pages during its crowdfunding campaign, having shipped their six-port and 12-port variants of the USB hub. While the 6-in-1 is commercially available at US$99.99 (~S$136.96) now, the 12-port and 18-port variant will be publicly available in late August and September, respectively.
