Razer announces new Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma and Laptop Stand Chroma v2

Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma 

The Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma is a serious single-block solution for connecting your laptop to everything. Perfect for those who have a one-computer setup, you can use the Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma to connect up to an eGPU, external displays, Ethernet, and add a bevy of expansion ports.

New for 2021 is that necessary support for Thunderbolt 4. 

You get plenty of them here with 10 ports. Those include dedicated Ethernet (RJ-45), three Type-A, an SD card reader in the front (very lovely), 3.5mm combo audio jack (also in the front), and no less than four Type-C/Thunderbolt 4 ports letting you pack on a few extra displays or SSD drives.

Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma's design is typical: it's a big, hefty black box that won't slide around your desk. There's also dedicated 90 watts of power for your laptop, which is more than enough for any Ultrabook while leaving some for charging devices.

Razer have some RGB, which you get here with an under glow using Razer Chroma. That means you can sync this to your Razer speakers, keyboard, display, mouse, mousepad, and Philips Hues lights to have a chorus of glowing accessories.

Preorders start today with a price of $329. That's not cheap, but considering what you are getting, it's in line with Razer and the rest of the premium dock market.

Razer Laptop Stand Chroma v2

Razer has another innovative accessory: Laptop Stand Chroma v2. Now you get two Type-C (including passthrough charging), two Type-A, and even an HDMI. RGB-lit laptop stand to be used while at a desk. You can either with the laptop directly or with an external display and keyboard expanded from that laptop.

This mount could probably be used with any laptop, but Razer is positioning it for those who have invested in Razer's own brands, which makes sense.

This setup is perfect for those with a Razer laptop who want to run up to two dual displays, expand those USB ports, all while powering (and recharging).

The laptop glows too, which is what makes it one of the nicest laptop stands we have seen.
