This compact device functions as both a 2-Port DisplayPort Switch, or a 2-Way DisplayPort Splitter. Featuring DP 1.4 32.4Gbps spec, the device handles 8K@30Hz, 4K@120Hz and 1080p@240Hz in either mode on supporting hardware.
With HDMI devices literally coming out of my ears, DisplayPort has always missed the spotlight when it comes to Switches and Splitters... well not any more! :-)
Say what you will about DisplayPort, but it can't be argued that it has serious versatility when it comes to desktop PCs and laptops. From a single DisplayPort output, this fancy metal box can give you both DisplayPort Switching, or 2-Way splitting of signals to the tune of 7680x4320 @ 30Hz! That's MASSIVE! Please keep in mind that the splitter functionality is just that, it will mirror one output to two screens. To show an expanded desktop over two screens, you'll need a DisplayPort MST Hub Splitter, like this one.
