Razer brings you a nice Thunderbolt 4 Dock. Mac users, however, can not make use of the nice lightning feature.

Razer is now also involved in increasing the selection of Thunderbolt 4 docks for Mac and PC. The Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma offers practical connectivity options for Mac users, but has to do without the individually adjustable lighting, since the corresponding software does not run under macOS.

To use the dock, the Mac must be running at least macOS 11.1 – whether it’s an Intel or M1-based model doesn’t matter. The price of around $329 brings you the following connectors:

  • 3 Thunderbolt 4 ports + 1 upstream
  • 3 USB 10 Gbps ports
  • 1 Ethernet Gigabit port
  • 1 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1 SD card reader (UHS-II, SD4.0)

If you take one or two of the Thunerbolt 4 ports to connect a monitor, 8K at 30 Hz is possible once, or 4K twice. Connected Macs on the upstream port get up to 90 watts via Power Delivery.

So, if you can do without the lighting disco and see the front-mounted Thunderbolt 4 port as an advantage (because you can get by with a short Thunderbolt cable that does not make the desk too messy), you can definitely be happy with the Razer Thunerbolt 4 Dock.

It is currently available for pre-order on Razer’s website.
