Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock Review

Testing and Methodology

The graphic part of this docking station works straight out, and as such, there isn’t anything to benchmark here. What I can say about it, is that it worked like a charm in my test.

The USB and LAN abilities, on the other hand, is something that I can test and compare. I will be connecting my trusted OCZ VX500 512GB through a SilverStone TS11C to the docking station and test how it is performing there.

Then I’ll disconnect the docking station and connect the drive directly to the system for another test. That should give us a great view on performance impact happening from the docking station if any. We should expect a minor fluctuation, but it is to be seen on the next pages how it will hold up.

The network connection is the second thing that I can test and compare, and in a very similar way to the USB testing. Naturally, I won’t be using my SSD here but rather connect the system to the LAN port on the docking station and run both TCP and UDP network benchmarks there. When those are done,   I’ll connect it my onboard LAN controller instead and run the same benchmarks.
