Question TB3 Dock w/ More Than 2 Ports?

[EDIT: Meant more than 2 ports]

Hey guys,

Gonna be biting the bullet on a new iMac 5K, full specs. However I was wondering if there was a dock solution that offers more than 2 TB3 ports?

While an iMac Pro does have 4 TB3 ports, that whole shebang is far more than what I need for music production purposes.

Seems like the majority of docks only have 2 ports. And as I understand it, each TB3 buss offers 2 ports. Was hoping there was a dock that utilized both ports and turned them into 4 ports...maybe at a slightly reduced speed.

Use Case: I plan on buying an Apollo x8p and 2-3 Octo Satellites to replace my TB2 UAD solutions. But I also have a 24TB TB2 storage array, and other TB2 HDD/SSD's that I DON'T plan on tossing anytime soon.

Side-Thought: I wish they had a TB3 dock that ALSO offered a couple TB2 ports. That way chunky adapters aren't needed.
