The full-featured USB Type-C natively supports PD, so the HDMI on the docking station can output up to 4K resolution, and can be connected to a display and multiple USB storage peripherals at the same time and used at the same time without consuming additional CPU resources.
However, the more functions the USB Type-C docking station has, the corresponding control chip also needs to be integrated, so the price will not be too cheap, but when it is combined with a full-featured USB Type-C interface, it can give full play to 100% of its performance, bringing To match the user experience of the native interface.
A full-featured docking station also needs to integrate PD charging chips, Hub chips, and HDMI conversion chips, etc.
Whether charging is supported is an important criterion for measuring the grade of a USB Type-C docking station, and it is also the main factor that widens the price difference. Because many notebooks use USB Type-C as the only charging interface, they cannot be charged when connected to a docking station that does not have a charging function.
It is recommended that you choose the USB Type-C docking station that supports charging first.
The competition between docking stations that support charging is whether they support the PD3. The device will flash off and then resume, while the docking station that supports PD3.0 will not be affected.
Many full-featured USB Type-Cs comply with the USB 3.1 Gen2 or 3.2 Gen2 standard and have a transfer rate of 10Gbps. However, most of the USB ports on the USB Type-C docking station are USB3.0 (5Gbps) standard. When reading an ultra-high-speed mobile solid-state drive, please connect it directly to the USB Type-C on the notebook, not through the docking station.
