Sonnet Technologies announced the latest Echo series Thunderbolt dock, renaming the Echo 11 Thunderbolt 4 Dock with noble simplicity. The novelty includes four 40Gbps Thunderbolt 4 interfaces (Type-C), three 10Gbps USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A sockets, a USB 2.0 charging port, a gigabit Ethernet nut and a 3.5mm combo jack, and with a card reader Supports 4.0 SD / SDHC / SDXC memory cards (SDXC UHS-II up to 320MB / s) and has a wide range of compatibility (all Thunderbolt 4 machines, M1 Macs, Apple smartphones and Windows with Thunderbolt 3 PCs).
Supporting simultaneous connection of up to 16 devices, the Echo 11 allows cell phone owners to connect all peripherals and external storage devices to their iron at once with a single Thunderbolt cable and charge the battery with the same 90-watt cable. Depending on the environment, the computer can also be connected to the slot a single 4K / 5K / 6K / 8K or two 4K / 5K displays. It’s worth noting that Thunderbolt 2 devices on macOS are also not out of the loop as long as we take advantage of the option offered by the optional adapter.
Thunderbolt 4 handles USB 3 and 4 pulses (including monitors) smoothly when used with the correct cable / adapter, even at the end of the device chain. We can connect the fastest portable NVMe SSDs to 3.2-watt 3.2-A ports with a calm heart, with no problems with them, while the presence of RJ-45 provides guaranteed network access, no more sharing on Wi-Fi.
The highly versatile Sonnet rescuer is expected to launch in the United States and Canada in the first half of April, but we have to wait until May for the international launch. The possible price, which will come with a 2-year warranty, has been set as $ 250 by the company.
