Question

I want to embrace the USB-C connector

What a great idea. One tiny connector to rule them all. No more Type A. No more micro. Etc, etc, etc.

But here is my problem. If I purchase a USB-C 3.1 card for my PC, it only has ONE port. No problem I thought, I'll just go out and purchase a USB-C to multiple USB-C powered hub. Funny thing is, I don't think such a thing exists. How am I supposed to plug in multiple power hungry USB-C devices to my machine at the SAME TIME while staying with ONLY USB-C connectors. Sure, I can get a USB-C to multiple Type-A plugs hub, but that's defeating the purpose of going with USB-C connectors. Am I missing something here? ARE there powered hubs that expand one USB-C port to multiple USB-C ports???
