Add Two 4K 60Hz Displays on Any Thunderbolt™ 3 Mac with this New Plugable™ Adapter

You can now connect two 4K 60z Displays to your 2016/2017 MacBook Pro

Thunderbolt™ 3 supports up to two displays which are directly routed from your PC’s graphics controller to drive monitors at full performance. However, in the Windows PC market, it’s been unevenly implemented with some PCs only supporting one display over Thunderbolt 3, others two. And that choice can vary per port on some Windows systems.

Apple has taken a cleaner approach with all the Thunderbolt 3 systems they’ve launched so far — all Thunderbolt 3 ports support two displays with no qualifications.

Today Plugable is excited to announce the availability of our newest product, our Thunderbolt™ 3 Dual DisplayPort Display Adapter (TBT3-DP2X-83) for all of these Thunderbolt 3 Apple Mac systems.

This new model is compatible with Apple Mac systems that have Thunderbolt 3 ports, such as the MacBook Pro Late 2016/2017 models and the 2017 iMac. The adapter allows for the connection of up to two 4K DisplayPort displays (4096×2160 and lower resolutions supported) using standard DisplayPort 1.2 cables. And, if you’re on the 5K bleeding edge, this adapter is one of the few solutions available to drive a single 5K display from your MacBook Pro 2016/2017. 5K displays bind two DisplayPort connections together to achieve 5K throughput.

This adapter acts as a conduit to your system’s internal graphics processor providing for the best possible performance. As such, it’s a great solution for content creation, gaming, and other workloads which require every last ounce of graphics performance. Note the adapter isn’t for older Thunderbolt 2 or earlier systems, or for non-Thunderbolt USB-C systems (like the Macbook 2015/2016). Just make sure your Mac has Thunderbolt 3!

This model is for DisplayPort compatible monitors only. It is *not* for HDMI monitors. In the coming weeks, we will be launching a separate HDMI version.
