With Thunderbolt 4 now a fixture in a bunch of laptops and desktops, we knew the accessories that take advantage of Intel’s new connection standard weren’t far behind. So far this year, we’ve seen a couple docking stations that turned that sole high-speed port into nearly a dozen input and output slots. So far, though, none of them came with multi-color LEDs. We mean, if you’re paying top dollar for high-end connectivity, might as well come with programmable LEDs, right? That’s exactly what you’ll get with the Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma, a 10-port docking station reinforced with the gaming outfit’s fancy Chroma lighting.
That’s right, it a docking station for that awesome Thunderbolt 4 port in that new computer you’re using, so you can take advantage of the new standard’s high-speed data transfer rates. Whether you’re a creative who plugs half a dozen different controllers to your rig, a gamer who wants that dual 4K monitor setup for full immersion, or just some dude who wants to future-proof your home setup, this thing will let you do all that and more.
The Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma is a docking station that turns that sole high-speed port on your laptop into 10 different slots for supporting a variety of accessories. Specifically, it gives you four Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) slots for all the new peripherals you’re using, three USB-A slots for older accessories, a Gigabit Ethernet slot, an SD card reader, and a 3.5 slot, so you can plug in your wired headphones, too. Those Thunderbolt 4 slots, by the way, support hooking up a pair of 4K monitors at up to 60 Hz or one 8K monitor at up to 30Hz, making this a great accessory for both visual media professionals and gamers alike.
It supports pass-through charging to all of the accessories you plug onto the ports, so you do all your charging right from the dock, too. Even better, it delivers up to 90 watts via USB-C, regardless of how many devices are connected to it, so this will facilitate seriously fast-charging for all your devices.
The Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma, of course, sets itself apart with the outfit’s integrated Chroma lighting. To the unfamiliar, this is the same lighting system found on all of Razer’s gaming laptops, desktops, and accessories, so you get access to 16.8 million colors and a suite of unique lighting effects, all of which you can customize from the Chroma Studio app. And yes, you can sync it with other Razer products, in case you’re invested in the company’s ecosystem.
Dimensions are 7.5 x 2.9 x 1.1 inches (width x depth x height), so it’s compact enough to easily make room for in almost any desk, with the included cable measuring 2.6 feet, so you can keep your desktop well under the desk without any hassles. It’s compatible with any Windows 10 and Mac computers with either a Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 port.
The Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma is priced at $329.99.
