Introducing the Microsoft Surface Thunderbolt™ 4 Dock
Surface products are always designed for versatility – from a laptop with the flexibility of a tablet in the Surface Pro to the Surface Laptop Studio that instantly transitions from powerful laptop to creative canvas, Surface devices let you work the way that best suits your needs. A key part of this versatility is the ability to instantly connect to a desktop setup at home or in the office for expansive work. A single, fast connection that provides access to external monitors and the accessories that customize your office or home workspace helps you to get more done. We are excited to announce the newest Surface Dock, Surface Thunderbolt™ 4 Dock, which extends the support of Thunderbolt 4 connectivity in Surface Pro 9, Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Laptop Studio. The new dock is available for purchase today at Microsoft.com.
Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock is a USB4/Thunderbolt 4 dock that helps maximize workspace, delivers ultra-high speed data transfer and the versatility to connect and charge your most important peripherals. This new accessory also carries forward our continuous commitment to security, sustainability and accessibility.
This new dock connects to the device via USB-C and is designed for use with Surface and other devices, featuring USB4/Thunderbolt 4. Easily connect to two 4K monitors at up to 60Hz1, experience fast data transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps2 and charge your device with power of up to 96W and enjoy extra power to charge accessories3. It offers an instant connection to three USB-C ports, three USB-A ports, a 3.5mm audio jack, a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port and a security lock slot. Windows 11 also ensures that settings are retained when connecting, so even if multiple devices use the same dock, each of them will have the display and connection settings that let them get right to work.
To help people of all abilities identify ports with ease, the new dock includes not only front-facing ports, but also versatile rear-facing ports with raised tactile indicators.
The newest Surface Dock also reflects our commitment to sustainability and was designed with recycled materials. The dock and the power supply unit enclosures are attributed to 20% ocean-bound plastic4 and lighter materials overall than our previous docks. Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock’s packaging is ~99% recyclable5 and free of single-use plastics.
Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock improves IT efficiency for commercial customers, with features like Firmware Update through Windows Update, Wake on LAN from Modern Standby, and MAC Address Passthrough. Surface Enterprise Management Mode (SEMM) easily locks down the ports of your dock in mission-critical environments and restricts functionality to specific devices. You can learn more about these and other IT features on our IT Pro Blog.
Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock will be available beginning today at Microsoft.com. To ensure customers have access to the options that best fit their needs and budget, it will be sold alongside our existing portfolio of Surface Dock, Surface Dock 2 and Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub products.
