DisplayLink 4K Drivers

We use DisplayLink chips in all our USB 2.0 and 3.0 graphics and laptop docking products. These drivers may be installed with or without hardware present yet. Final configuration will then be completed automatically when hardware is plugged in.

Please be aware that it is perfectly normal to have your monitors briefly flash black (as if not connected) once or more during installation. A reboot may be required to complete install.

Windows 10, 8.1/8 and Windows 7

DisplayLink drivers are constantly being updated and improved. (Please note: 4K DisplayLink adapters are only compatible with Windows 7 and above.) The current recommended drivers for DisplayLink 4K adapters can be downloaded here:
DisplayLink Driver Version 8.0 M2

Mac OS X

Currently, OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and 10.10 (Yosemite) can exhibit issues with multiple monitor setups. For more details on the situation with DisplayLink and OS X 10.9 and 10.10, please take a look at this blog post for additional information.

If you are a user that can stay on 10.8.5, DisplayLink’s current drivers will work well for HDMI/DVI/VGA up to 4 additional USB-attached monitors. If possible, we recommend staying on 10.8.5 until the 10.9/10.10 problems are solved by Apple and DisplayLink. On versions of OS X beyond 10.8.5, performance of DisplayLink USB graphics adapters will potentially be unsatisfactory, and is therefor not recommended.

If you already have 10.9 or 10.10, the most recent DisplayLink driver (2.5) should work best for most users:
