Microsoft declares $299.99 Surface Thunderclap 4 Dock that associates with USB-C

Microsoft has quite recently officially divulged a Surface Thunderclap 4 Dock hours after the gadget leaked. The new Surface dock, which costs $299.99, will connect via USB-C rather than the exclusive Surface Connect port. Microsoft intends to continue selling its Surface Dock 2, which includes a Surface Connect port for Surface devices without USB-C or Thunderbolt 4 ports.

This new Surface Thunderclap 4 Dock will support gadgets other than Surface for the first time. It supports data transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps and 96W of charging thanks to Thunderbolt 4, and it connects via USB-C. At the front, there is a solitary USB-C port close by a USB-A port yet unfortunately no SD card slot. There are two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, an audio jack, a 2.5-gigabit ethernet port, a security lock slot, and the rear of the Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock.

Although this does not mean that the Surface Connect port will be discontinued immediately, it is evident that Microsoft is moving in that direction. Both the Surface Laptop 5 and the Surface Pro 9 from Microsoft come equipped with USB-C ports that are compatible with Thunderbolt 4 in addition to the exclusive Surface Connect port. Microsoft shipped the Surface 3 with just a Micro USB charging port instead of the proprietary Surface Connect charging, so it now seems likely that we will soon see a Surface device with just USB-C.

It required Microsoft some time to support USB-C and even Thunderclap 4 on its Surface gadgets. In 2019, the Surface Pro 7 received USB-C support, and two years later, the Surface Pro 8 received Thunderbolt support. In 2020, Microsoft said Surface gadgets didn’t send with Thunderclap at the time because of safety concerns.

The brand-new Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock will go on sale today for $299.99 from Microsoft’s own online store.
