Hyperdrive adaptor solves USB problem on new Macbook Pro
The Hyperdrive adaptor will replace your missing USB ports in one compact hub. To the great annoyance of people everywhere including musicians, Apple got rid of its traditional USB ports on the new MacBook Pro last year.
Some savvy tech company, Sanho, in San Francisco may have come up with a solution.
The Hyperdrive is an all in one hub that plugs into two of your laptop’s USB-C ports and provides two male USB-A 3.1 ports, SD and micro SD slots, HDMI output, a Thunderbolt 3 and a USB-C port.
There are other hubs and adaptors currently looking to open up the MacBook Pro’s connectivity options. However, Sahno claims the HyperDrive is one of the fastest. It uses its two USB-C connections to reach data speeds of 50GB per second while dongles generally run at USB 3.0’s 5GB per second.
If you are in the MacBook Pro USB port predicament then the Hyperdrive may be just the tonic. While it may not be the slickest looking solution it is a still a much more viable option than the various dongles Apple recommends as an alternative.
The new MacBook Pro costs almost R 30k and it will aggravatingly cause you to find a solution to the USB port issue.
The Hyperdrive is a lot more affordable though. You can order yours on Kickstarter for R 940.
The Kickstarter campaign for this adaptor has already reached more than $1,300,000. It would appear that many people believe in this product’s potential.
It also proves how many MacBook users are going to get or already have the new model and how badly they still need USB-3.
No matter what Apple does, or how insanely they change their upgrade models, people will continue to buy their products.
