Sonnet Debuts Mac/Windows Compatible Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter

Sonnet Technologies has 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, an adapter is required; however, most computers now lack DP ports. 

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.
