Hyper has released a new turntable dock for the 24-inch iMac with a 360-degree swivel mechanism, making it simple to turn the screen towards a customer or coworker in an office or adjust your view on a video call.
The dock, which has been nominated for a CES 2022 Innovation Award, also has a built-in SSD enclosure (M.2 SATA/NVMe) with a simple push-to-release mechanism and storage capacity of up to 2TB, as well as nine connectivity options, including one HDMI port, SD and microSD card slots, one USB-C port, four USB-A ports, and power in.
The dock, which costs $199.99 and comes in silver and white finishes, will be available to order on Hyper’s website beginning today.
In addition, Hyper announced the world’s first Thunderbolt 4 hub with an integrated 100-watt GaN power supply. The hub has one Thunderbolt 4 upstream port for connecting to and charging Thunderbolt-equipped computers such as Macs, and three Thunderbolt 4 downstream ports for connecting dual 4K displays at 60Hz or a single 8K display at 30Hz.
“Previously, Thunderbolt 4 hubs included a large external power brick that was frequently larger than the hub itself,” said Hyper president Daniel Chin. “By incorporating the most recent GaN technology into HyperDrive, Hyper has eliminated the bulky power brick in favor of a single hub and charger device for improved portability and a cleaner workspace aesthetic.”
The hub supports USB-C Power Delivery and offers up to 96W of pass-through charging to the host computer, making it suitable for the 14-inch MacBook Pro.
The hub’s pricing and availability were not disclosed, but customers can sign up on Hyper’s website to be notified when more information becomes available.
