Leveraging 40Gbps of bandwidth made possible by Intel's Thunderbolt 3 technology, Plugable's Dual DisplayPort Adapter enables users to connect two additional displays with native graphics performance. Supports up to two additional 4K displays (or a single 5k display) with 60Hz refresh rates. Thunderbolt 3-attached displays tap directly into the power of your system's GPU to enable high-performance, low-latency output without utilizing additional system resources.
Not all Thunderbolt 3 systems are compatible with dual display graphics adapters.
For both graphics adapter outputs to function, system manufacturer must have routed two DisplayPort lines to the Thunderbolt 3 port(s). This is an engineering decision made by your system manufacturer. Currently only Dell and HP Thunderbolt 3 systems meet this requirement but more compatible Thunderbolt 3 systems are expected in the future.
Dell XPS 13 9350 & XPS 15 9550
HP Elite X2 1012 G1
Requires updated system BIOS, Thunderbolt 3 drivers, and Thunderbolt 3 firmware installed on host system.
Will not function when attached to a non-Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port
As mentioned above, most current non-Dell, non-HP Thunderbolt 3 systems are not compatible due to a limited number of DisplayPort lines routed to the Thunderbolt 3 port.
Usage with non-DisplayPort Displays
Conversion to HDMI/DVI /VGA can only be done with active adapters (not inexpensive DP++ passive adapters).
In the Box
1x Plugable TBT3-DP2X w/ built-in 10 inch (25 cm) Thunderbolt 3 USB-C cable and quick-install guide.
2016 MacBook Pro is not compatible. Not all Thunderbolt 3 Windows systems are compatible with Thunderbolt 3 dual graphics adapters. Please note this is the "DisplayPort" version of the adapter, not HDMI. If HDMI is needed, please select it above. Please see plugable.com/tbt3-dp2x for important additional compatibility information prior to purchase
Supports two DisplayPort monitors up to 4096x2160@60Hz (4K) or a single 5120x2880@60Hz (5K) display, uncompressed and at full GPU performance
Requires compatible Thunderbolt 3 Windows system. Compatible with many popular Thunderbolt 3 systems such as Lenovo Thinkpad P50 & P70, Asus UX501VW, Dell XPS 9350 & 9550, Precision 5510 & 7710, and other Dell & HP Thunderbolt 3 systems (Compatibility is determined by motherboard design from your system manufacturer)
Ports are pure DisplayPort, not DP++. Incompatible with "passive" DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI/VGA adapters; must use active adapters if protocol conversion is required. Thunderbolt 3 adapters require up-to-date system BIOS/firmware, Thunderbolt 3 drivers, and graphics drivers. Please visit our website for more system-specific compatibility details
