Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core supports dual 4K 60Hz monitors

Published

on

Belkin has expanded its Thunderbolt 3 docks product line with the unveiling of its new Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core, a new model that is compatible with both Windows and Mac. According to the company, its new Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core is the first-ever dual-powered dock of its kind with Thunderbolt 3 tech and compatibility with both operating systems.

Laptops featuring only USB-C ports have become very common, but are a problem for many users who are still dependent on different and older connection types. Third-party Thunderbolt 3 docks are the solution to this, enabling users to plug the dock into the laptop, then connect various peripherals to the dock, including drives, monitors, and other devices.

The new Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core from Belkin offers 60 watts of power for upstream charging, as well as support for using either two 4K 60Hz monitors or a single 8K monitor. The dock has a large variety of ports, including DisplayPort 1.4, USB-C PD, HDMI 2.0, and audio-in/out ports for speakers and microphones.

As well, the new Dock Core has a single 10Gbps USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port and a single USB-A 2.0 port. Wired connectivity is possible with its 1Gb Ethernet port for users who need a hardwired connection. Another big feature is that despite a large number of ports, this model is compact, making it practical for carrying on-the-go.

Belkin’s Jon Roepke detailed some of the potential uses for this new model, stating:

Belkin’s Thunderbolt 3 docks and adapters are perfect for remote workers, be it from the home, an RV beach vacation or a hotel room. They transform mobile devices into high productivity centers on-the-go. They easily connect a USB-C laptop to virtually all common peripherals like displays, projectors, external hard drives, ethernet and speakers, so they can get to work quickly and easily without needing to be their own IT department.

The Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Dock Core will be available from a number of retailers starting next month for $169.99 USD.

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
