it appeared from my investigation to be limited to 300A.
The ratings tend to be for sustained capacity. So it should be able peak higher than that for short periods of time. (But CCS stations are normally limited to 250A or 500A and a Model 3 that is mostly empty will be ~350V so kW will likely be lower than the maximum would lead you to think.)

Now that we have a rear view there might be an explanation for what that funny prong on the back is for. It looks like the charge port will push it into the adapter, probably to latch the CCS "trigger" latch in place when the adapter is plugged into the car.

Also note that the specs indicate 500V and 300A, so this could get "up to" 150 kW on a 500V Tesla.
On a 400V Tesla such as a Model 3 that would be about 120 kW (400V*300A), but I believe the new Model S/X charge at higher voltage so could get a bit more.

Excellent find @RadScientist! couple of things that I noted in trying to find out more: it appeared from my investigation to be limited to 300A. While I couldn’t quickly figure out a way to translate the user manual (1 page pdf) link, the figures shown appeared to be with a model s/x or so I thought based on the charge port flap.
Good catch, that very much is an S/X charge port.

Excellent. I just created a thread about the South Korean CCS Aadapter User Manual here (South Korean CCS Aadapter User Manual) and asked questions about that "pin" or "prong." Still seems delicate and vulnerable to breakage.
