Razer has been creating high-quality products for years in just about every category it falls into, from laptops to accessories like mice, keyboards, microphones, etc., but it has an obsession with adding RGB lights to all of them. Therefore, in this new Thunderbolt 4 Dock I was not going to break the habit.
New Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma
A few days ago, CalDigit presented a new HUB with Thunderbolt 4 connections and also compatible with the new USB4 standard with which they sought to offer a quality and powerful solution for users with a high degree of demand. And it is that this dock is prepared to offer maximum performance to the equipment that already incorporates these new and fast connections or will do so soon.
Well, now it’s Razer that is also joining the party. But instead of a simple HUB, what it launches on the market is a complete dock with a variety of connections so that when you use it with your equipment, mainly a laptop, you only have to connect a single cable. Everything else will go to the dock and there will not be any type of “plug” that prevents you from enjoying the maximum possible performance because you can enjoy all this:
- SD UHS-II card reader
- Gigabit ethernet connection
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- Thunderbolt 4 connector for connection to computer
- 3 x Thunderbolt 4 connectors for displays and accessories
- 3 x USB Type A 3.1 Gen 2
As you can see, at the connection level this new dock is more than complete and also allows charging thanks to an output power of 90W with which it will be more than enough for even the most demanding laptops in terms of energy.
Logically it is not the only interesting thing, together with the support for previous connections such as Thunderbolt 3, this new dock is an ideal solution for those who seek the way to connect up to two displays at 4K resolution at the same time and at a refresh rate of 60 Hz. If you can and want to go further, you can also use an 8K screen at 30p.
RGB lights to add color to your desktop
Along with all these features that make it a dock to have a survey, the most striking thing about Razer’s proposal as it could not be otherwise is the use of RGB lights. Yes, even if you want its aluminum finish, elegant and well finished, it will be what makes many have to pay attention to it.
Razer has introduced a series of RGB LED lights with which you can add a touch of color to your desktop. Something that surely will not attract users with a more professional approach, or will not compensate them directly, but whoever wants a much more colorful setup will.
However, here that each one decides to what extent it compensates him or not having this striking option. What it does is that the price of the new Razer Thunderbolt 4 dock will be $ 329 . Too expensive? Well, most similar question solutions out there. Of course, if you manage with the ports that your equipment already integrates, then that money can be invested in another type of device or accessory.
