The first of a generation, the SD5700T Thunderbolt™4 Dual 4K Docking Station with 90W PD offers premium Thunderbolt benefits now and well into the future.

San Mateo, CA – November 16th, 2020Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, announced the SD5700T Thunderbolt™ 4 laptop docking station — the first of its kind to provide dedicated power to all of your connected devices no matter how many are connected to it. This universally compatible, modern docking station unlocks the power of Thunderbolt 4 for the ultimate plug-and-play solution.

For the first time, the Thunderbolt-certified SD5700T Thunderbolt™ 4 Dual 4K Docking Station with 90W PD (K35175NA) can connect up to three additional Thunderbolt devices directly (up to five additional in total) while providing 40Gbps of total bandwidth, up to Dual 4K @ 60Hz video output, and audio; all through the included 0.8m (2.6ft) Thunderbolt 4 cable. In addition to performance, Intel VT-d based DMA protection keeps the setup secure.

The SD5700T helps create a future-ready desktop setup with 11 ports of connectivity, including four Thunderbolt 4 ports; four USB-A ports (one 5V/1.5A charging port on the front and three USB-A 3.2 Gen2@10Gbps ports on the rear); one Gigabit Ethernet port; one audio combo jack; and one UHS-II SD 4.0 card reader. Single 8K or Dual 4K (@ 60 Hz) video output for Thunderbolt 4-enabled hosts lets you extend visual productivity with the crisp resolution, contrast, and color depth of Ultra HD. A zero-footprint mounting option, security cable lock slots, free Kensington DockWorks™ software, and a three-year warranty helps users create a personalized, clutter-free, and secure desk environment.

“Kensington is proud to work closely with Intel to deliver accessories that enable users to take advantage of Thunderbolt 4’s industry-leading data, video, and power connectivity,” said Ben Thacker, Vice President and General Manager at Kensington. “Kensington looks forward to continuing to design innovative accessories like the SD5700T that support next-gen technologies to create a best-in-class user experience.”
