Anker has launched a new Thunderbolt 4 dock that's equipped with 12 total ports, including a 90-watt power pass-through slot and legacy options.

The Anker Apex Thunderbolt 4 dock sports the same general design as previous products in Anker's work-from-home lineup, but sports a broader selection of ports.

Those ports include a 90W Thunderbolt 4 port that can power any M1 MacBook model, though it isn't compatible with M1 desktops. There are also a pair of 4K HDMI ports, three USB-C ports, four USB-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a 3.5mm audio interface, and an SD card slot.

The Apex is compatible with a range of specifications, including USB4, DisplayPort, and PCI Express. The dock will be able to handle a single 8K display at 30Hz, a 4K display at 120Hz, or various other display combinations at 4K 60Hz. It can power up to three external monitors simultaneously, though only for Windows or Mac devices equipped with Intel chips.

Anker's Apex Thunderbolt 4 dock is available for $299.99 at Amazon. It's slated to start shipping on July 1.
