Sonnet Technologies announced the latest addition to its expanding Thunderbolt 3 product line, the Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter. The compact, bus-powered device enables users to connect up to two 4K ultra-high-definition (UHD) DisplayPort (DP) monitors or one 5K DP monitor to a single Thunderbolt 3 port on their computers.
Desktop computer users can enjoy the benefits of working with multiple monitors without having to connect to multiple ports on the computer. For many users of thin and light notebook computers wanting to connect two large UHD monitors, an adapter to connect them is required — most laptop and notebook computers lack the DP ports featured on UHD monitors. Sonnet’s Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter is a plug-and-play solution for adding dual DP port connectivity to most computers with Thunderbolt 3 ports. Users simply plug in the Sonnet adapter to their computers, connect the monitors with standard DP cables (sold separately), and then configure the displays through the operating system.
Although the Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter supports up to two 4K DP monitors at 60 hertz or one 5K DP monitor at 60 hertz, it also supports monitors with lower resolutions, such as full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) and 1920 x 1200, making it well-suited for different home and office workspace applications. Plus, the Sonnet adapter’s built-in audio support ensures that there’s no need to connect additional cables to hear sound from the monitors. For added convenience, the Sonnet adapter is also compatible with “active” DP-to-HDMI, DP-to-DVI, and DP-to-VGA adapters, enabling the connection of a wider variety of monitors.
The Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter (part number TB3-DDP4K) is available now with an MSRP of $89. More information on this product is available at www.sonnettech.com/product/thunderbolt3-dual-displayport-adapter.html.
