The Thunderbolt 3 product line has been expanded to include dual display adapters with 4K and 60Hz functionalities, compatible with the latest Windows and Mac laptops.

The Thunderbolt 3 is something of a favorite and fans will be glad to know that StarTech.com is expanding its product's line to include compatibility with Windows and Apple laptops.

The Dual DisplayPort and DualHDMI 2.0 are bus-powered, and plug-and-play. For the first time, they will support dual uncompressed HDMI 2.0 streams with resolutions of up to 2160p (4K) and refresh rates of up to 60Hz, all from a single Thunderbolt 3 port. Both are also now compatible with the latest generation of Thunderbolt 3 enabled MacBook Pro's. 

The Dual DisplayPort Adapter (SKU: TB32DP2T) also supports a single 5K 60Hz stream using two DP cables, for those who don't have need for a double stream. It functions as a full graphic adapter with audio support, offering a compact alternative to a full laptop dock.

Note that these only work on a Thunderbolt 3 compatible unit and will not function with generic USB-C ports.

You can find them on sale at CDW, Amazon, Insight, SHI, Newegg, PC Connection, and other leading resellers, and they will be distributed by Ingram Micro, SYNNEX, Tech Data, D&H and ASI.
