    Bought my Mac mini a year ago, I have a USB-C expander (extra USB 3.1 ports, HDMI and Ethernet) plugged into it. I would like to get a hub with at least two display ports (HDMI, VGA or DP), plus an SD card reader as well. Any suggestions? Aside from CalDigit’s amazing Thunderbolt 3 dock.

    iMac Pro + Pro Display HDR

    Apologies if this info is already out there somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it. Is it reasonable to assume that the iMac Pro, which can run two external 5K displays, will support two connected Pro Display HDRs, one for each Thunderbolt 3 bus? Does anyone have any concrete info on this?
