MacRumors reports about the release of a hub with Thunderbolt 3 pass-through by Satechi.

But then again, who cares? The consumer is winning here. More choice! Plus, the last time we reviewed a Satechi product, we were pleasantly surprised by the build quality. It looks like this new hub is also milled from a single piece of aluminum, but we hope to update you when we get our hands on this product.
