Plugable Introduces 3 New Graphics Adapters

You have a laptop and an extra monitor, but your laptop doesn't have an HDMI or DisplayPort port. Hubs and docks are a great way to add more screens, but it’s more hardware than you’re looking for. Introducing Plugable's new graphics adapters built on Silicon Motion technology: a simple and affordable solution for extending your laptop screen to an extra monitor or two. And if you have more screens, add more adapters to connect up to eight monitors to your Windows laptop.

Getting Connected

Available in three configurations—single HDMI (UGA-HDMI-S), dual HDMI (UGA-HDMI-2S), and single DisplayPort (UGA-DP-S)—Plugable’s new graphics adapters feature a hybrid 2-in-1 USB 3.0 and USB-C cable for a quick and easy connection back to the host computer. It doesn’t matter if you connect through a USB 3.0 port or a Thunderbolt 4 port, you can count on resolutions up to 1920x1080 @ 60Hz.

The Fine Print

Although ideal for users working with web and productivity apps—like Google Docs, or the Windows Office Suite—these adapters are not recommended for graphics-intensive or design work. And you’ll run into problems with video playback on sites like Netflix and Hulu. On Mac, screen rotation is not available and clamshell mode is only available on macOS 12 when the laptop is connected to its power adapter. SMI driver download is required for Windows. SMI instant view is required for Mac.

Of course, these only represent our newest line of graphics adapters. If you’re looking for an adapter in a different configuration, check out Plugable's top selling line of VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort graphics adapters.
