OWC showcased a range of storage solutions for both Macs and Windows PCs at Computex this year. These products includes a new dock, portable SSDs, enclosures, and more.

One highlight at their booth was the OWC Thunderbolt Go Dock, which supports the new Thunderbolt Share standard. This dock allows two PCs or Macs to connect via Thunderbolt Share, enabling a 40 Gbps network connection for rapid file and resource transfers. It also lets users share various ports, I/O, and card readers between the two machines.
