Plugable, the Washington-based company specializing in docking stations and USB peripherals has unveiled a new USB 4 docking station that’s turning heads. The UD-4VPD supports USB 4 alongside Thunderbolt 4 with the impressive ability to provide output to two 4K monitors at 120 Hz. It’s officially been released today through numerous vendors including Newegg and Amazon which already has a coupon available for the new dock.

The output performance will vary depending on the specifications of the machine you’re using with the UD–4VPD. Under optimal conditions, you can use two 4K monitors at 120 Hz or get one 8K monitor to output at 60H z. Plugable has compatibility details available on their website which confirm you can also get two 8K screens to output at 30 Hz if your machine has Windows 10 or Windows 11 with USB4, Thunderbolt 4, and DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3 and DSC.

The docking station has 11 ports total which include two HDMI 2.1 ports, three USB 4 ports, one USB Type-C with 20W for charging devices, an SD card reader, a microSD card reader, a 3.5 mm combo audio jack, a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, and a 100W charging port.
