Razer releases Thunderbolt 4 dock, updates laptop stand

Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock on desk

The Razer Thunderbolt™ 4 Dock Chroma is available for pre-order for US$329.99 at Razer.com and RazerStore retail locations.

In addition to announcing the Razer Huntsman V2 Analog gaming keyboard with adjustable actuation the other day, the company also released a Thunderbolt 4 dock and updated their laptop stand. Only a month into the year, and it looks to be a busy one for the gaming peripheral and device company.

Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock Chroma

Thunderbolt docks are almost a requirement these days, with laptops getting thinner and coming with fewer ports. Typically speaking, they are grey, usually sleek, and something you likely try to tuck away out of sight. The Razer Thunderbolt 4 Dock is a matte black dock, complete with Razer Chroma lighting — because, of course, it does.
