Matrox Announces Thunderbolt(TM) Docking Station at $249

Matrox DS1 Brings Unprecedented Convenience and Connectivity to MacBook and Ultrabook Users

TAIPEI — June 4, 2012 — Matrox today introduced Matrox(R) DS1(TM), a Thunderbolt docking station that brings all the productivity benefits of a desktop computer to MacBook(R) and Ultrabook(TM) users. From a single Thunderbolt connection, users can add multiple peripherals including a large DVI or HDMI(R) display, a full-size keyboard, and a mouse. A gigabit Ethernet port provides connectivity to a wired corporate network, enabling data transfers 18 times faster than Wi-Fi(TM). One SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, a microphone input, and a speaker/headphone output are also provided. With its solid aluminum construction, yet sleek design, Matrox DS1 is ideal for office, dorm, or home use.

“Today’s MacBooks and Ultrabooks are powerful enough for most corporate users but their limited connectivity makes them inconvenient, and their small screens and keyboards make them uncomfortable to use in the office all day,” said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing at Matrox. “The new Matrox DS1 docking station easily enables the creation of an ergonomic workspace and brings much-needed expandability for printers, scanners, storage, smartphones, optical drives, cameras, flash drives, and other peripherals.”

“Thunderbolt delivers unparalleled performance, flexibility, and simplicity to personal computing,” said Jason Ziller, Intel’s director of Thunderbolt Marketing. “Products like the Matrox DS1 docking station help highlight what Thunderbolt makes possible.”

Matrox DS1 will be showcased at Computex Taipei 2012 in the Intel booth, M0410 — located in the NanGang Exhibition Hall.

Price and availability
Priced at $249 US (Euro 219, £169) not including local taxes and delivery, Matrox DS1 will be available through a worldwide network of authorized dealers beginning in September.
