The Dual 4K USB-C Docking Station is a 144 x 44 x 14 mm, 98 gram device that connects to your computer through a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port capable of delivering up to 100 watts of power and maximum transfer rate of 10 Gbit/s.

The body of the device houses five additional connections such as an HDMI 2.0 port, two more USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, another USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

The idea is that we can, for example, connect two additional monitors using this device, being able to reach resolutions of up to 4K thanks to the combination of USB and HDMI ports, thus obtaining an extended workspace with support for refresh rates up to 144 Hz in the case of 2K video, only 30 Hz if we choose dual 4K output or 60 Hz if we want a single 4K output.

We can also use it to connect a second monitor and still have a free extra USB charging port with powers up to 100 watts for our mobiles, tablets and accessories, while maintaining a 10 Gbps data channel in the rest of the USB ports. connect hard drives and external memories.

Regarding the construction of the device itself, Asus guarantees that it has been designed with its durability and resistance in mind, incorporating a data cable shielded by an aluminum protector that reduces interference by up to at 60%.
