After Intel opened the Thunderbolt 3 protocol to the USB Association for free, USB4 products with the same 40Gbps transmission specifications as Thunderbolt 3 emerged. They have great advantages in terms of price and compatibility. Here are three products on sale USB4 docking station, some models support iPhone 15 series.
The docking station adopts a metal aluminum shell with a concave and convex groove design. The back is rich in heat-dissipating silicone that quickly conducts heat. It dissipates heat from the inside to the outside, making it more stable for long-term operation. Plug and play, no driver installation required. It adopts Intel JHL8840 chip and is compatible with Thunderbolt 3 transmission protocol. The docking station adopts USB4 specification and has a more comprehensive interface protocol, which improves the user experience.
The interfaces are very rich, including a 3.5mm ear audio jack, an SD and TF card slot, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a DC20V DC power interface, a USB4 upstream interface, three UBS4 downstream interfaces, two USB2.0 interfaces and Two USB-A 3.1 interfaces supporting 10Gbps. The docking station has different upper limits for external screens for Mac systems and Windows. Windows systems support single screen 8K@60Hz or dual screens 4K@60Hz, while Mac systems support up to dual screens 4K@60Hz.
Satechi USB4 6-in-1 docking station
The docking station is made of one-piece aluminum alloy material, which is durable, fast in heat dissipation and has better performance. Widely compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C interface devices.
The USB4 port provides a total bandwidth allocation of up to 40Gbps, greatly improving video and data transmission speeds. The interface is rich in number, providing an HDMI interface, a 2.5GBit Ethernet port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, two USB-C interfaces and a USB-A interface. The three USB interfaces are all 10Gbps specifications. The HDMI interface supports up to 8K@60Hz (Mac system supports up to 4K@60Hz).
UGREEN 8K ultra-high definition video transmission USB4 docking station
The total transmission rate of the UGreen USB4 docking station reaches 40Gbps, and it is compatible with Thunderbolt 4 and Thunderbolt 3 high-speed interfaces. Of course, the regular Type-C interface is also supported. The appearance adopts a flat bar design and is very compact. The body is made of aluminum alloy, which has better thermal conductivity and durability. The integrated connection cable does not require additional data cables. It can be easily put into the backpack for travel and does not take up space. You can carry it with your notebook and go.
The UGreen USB4 docking station is developed based on the USB4 standard, with a total rate bandwidth of up to 40Gbps, and an HDMI video output port that supports up to 8K ultra-high definition video transmission and 240Hz ultra-high brush video transmission. In addition to the video interface, there are also four USB3.2 data interfaces, 2A2C, with a rate of 10Gbps, for connecting peripherals such as U disks, mice and keyboards, printers, and scanners, creating a lightweight and portable high-speed expansion center for users.
