Sanho Corporation Announces HyperDrive GEN2 USB-C Hub

Last February Sanho Corporation created a USB-C hub for iPad Pro called HyperDrive, along with Mac hubs before that. Now it’s back with HyperDrive GEN2, and it’s more powerful.

HyperDrive GEN2

These models aren’t as iPad-friendly as the first generation HyperDrive, because it can’t easily clip onto the side of your device. These new models are too big for that. You can still use them with a USB-C iPad Pro but it will be via a cable.


  • 4K60Hz HDMI HDR (vs 4K30Hz HDMI on 1st generation USB-C hubs)
  • 300MB/s UHS-II MicroSD/SD (vs 104MB/s UHS-I MicroSD/SD)
  • 10Gb/s USB-A Gen 2 (vs 5Gb/s USB-A Gen 1)
  • 100W USB-C Power Delivery (vs 60W USB-C Power Delivery)

It comes in three sizes: 6 ports, 12 ports, and 18 ports.
