Elgato parent company Corsair at CES 2019 this week unveiled its new Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock. The dock connects to the latest MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with a single Thunderbolt 3 cable and provides a wide variety of additional I/O connectivity options, eliminating the need for multiple adapters.

The dock is equipped with two USB-C ports with transfer speeds up to 10Gb/s, two USB-A ports with transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s, two Thunderbolt 3 ports with transfer speeds up to 40 Gb/s, one DisplayPort 1.2, one Gigabit Ethernet port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and audio output, and SD and microSD card readers.

The dock can drive a 5K external display at 60Hz over Thunderbolt, or two 4K external displays simultaneously, with one connected via DisplayPort and the other via Thunderbolt. 4K at 60Hz is also supported via HDMI 2.0 with an adapter.

The new Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock is available now for $349.99 from Amazon, Corsair, and select other retailers and distributors around the world.

Am I dreaming is this the first dock to offer 4 USB-C ports (since two TB3 ports can double as USB-C)? Well, not counting LG's 5K monitor?
USB-C is merely the physical connector. TB3 is always USB-C.

Some USB-C ports carry USB 3.1 data, others TB3, others Displayport or HDMI, and many carry multiple modes. It's bit of a mess. The manufacturer says for this model, the two USB-C ports marked as TB3 support Thunderbolt 3 obviously, plus power, plus USB 3.1, plus DisplayPort (a common combination). Then there are the two other USB-C ports that are USB 3.1 only. So if you're interested in USB 3.1 Gen 2 data (10 Gb/s) you have 4 ports available total.

Experts at pricing themselves out of the market... within 2 months Amazon will be flooded with knockoffs for $50
Doubt it. Find me a knockoff TB3 dock for under $100, please. I'm not sure there are any under $200 actually. USB-C docks with no TB3 do not count.

Gotta love this new MacBook Pro. You pay MORE for LESS ports and then pay even more to get them back through a dock.

There are already $99 docks that use USB-C. I could maybe see $149 given the ports it offers, but $349 is insane.
