Plugable's Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Display Adapter
Leveraging 40Gbps of bandwidth made possible by Intel's Thunderbolt 3 technology, Plugable's Dual DisplayPort Adapter enables content creators and power users to connect two additional displays with uncompromising graphics performance.
Adapter housing is made from sleek, lightweight aluminum allowing for easy expansion of your Thunderbolt 3 laptop or tablet on the go.
Not all Thunderbolt 3 systems are compatible with dual display graphics adapters. See important details regarding system compatibility in the section below.
Dual Outputs from a Single Thunderbolt 3 Adapter
Thunderbolt 3-attached displays tap directly into the power of your system's graphics processor to enable high-performance, low-latency output without utilizing additional system resources.
Supports two DisplayPort displays up to 4096x2160@60Hz (4K / UHD), or utilize both connectors to enable single 5K display like the Dell UP2715K. Backward compatible with 1080P DisplayPort monitors as well.
Important Compatibility Details
Thunderbolt 3 is a powerful new technology, and system manufacturers have substantial discretion in how they implement various technical elements and features. As a result, compatibility information is complex, and many currently available Thunderbolt 3 systems aren't compatible with our dual graphics adapters.
To work as expected with our Dual DisplayPort Adapter, the host Thunderbolt 3-enabled system must meet the following requirements:
System manufacturer must have physically routed two DisplayPort lines to the Thunderbolt 3 port. Currently only Thunderbolt 3 systems from Apple, Dell, HP, and Lenovo meet this requirement
Current Thunderbolt 3 host firmware ("NVM"), version 14 or higher. Some system manufacturers have not yet released updated compatible firmware
Requires updated system UEFI BIOS, Thunderbolt 3 drivers, and graphics (GPU) drivers from system manufacturer
Please note this adapter connects to monitors using the DisplayPort standard, which is different from HDMI. We do make a separate HDMI version of the adapter is available if connectivity to HDMI displays is needed.

Systems Which Only Support a Single Video Output
Systems with a single DisplayPort line wired to the Thunderbolt 3 port are not updatable to support two displays; they will always only support a single video output over Thunderbolt 3. As such, we do not suggest they be used with our Thunderbolt 3 dual graphics adapters.
