Sonnet has announced its Echo 11 Thunderbolt 4 Dock. This Thunderbolt 4 docking station features four Thunderbolt 4 ports, as well as providing up to 90 Watts of charging power to portable computers. Oh, and it also offers 8K display support
As well as the four Thunderbolt 4 ports, you also get three USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type A ports, one USB 2.0 Type A charging port, one RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, one 3.5 mm combo audio port, and one SD 4.0 card slot.
Sonnet’s dock is compatible with all computers with Thunderbolt 4 ports, M1 Mac computers with Thunderbolt/USB4 ports, Intel Mac computers with Thunderbolt 3 ports, and late-model Windows computers with Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Depending on the computer to which it’s connected, the Echo dock also supports connecting one (always 4K, up to 5K, 6K, or 8K) or up to two monitors (4K + 4K, or up to 5K + 5K).
The Echo dock’s 10Gbps USB Type A ports support the vast majority of USB peripherals, including superfast USB NVMe SSDs, at up to full speed. Unlike some other docks, each port on the Echo 11 provides up to 7.5 watts of power to ensure bus-powered devices will operate without fail. The included Gigabit Ethernet port is perfect for connecting broadband internet directly to the user’s computer without another device competing for bandwidth on their WiFi setup.
The SD card reader reads the latest SDXC UHS-II memory cards at up to 300 MB/s.
