I’m trying to connect my Dell XPS 9560 to my Acer XB280HK external monitor (4K, 60Hz, G-Sync, DP 1.2) via Thunderbolt 3 Port.
After I first bought a noname Type-C to DP cable which did not work I decided to look for a better Adapter. I found plugable and was impressed by the amount of technical details that are publicly available.
I’m considering two products at the moment:
- the Thunderbolt 3 to two DisplayPort Adapter
- the Type-C to DP cable
Both are listed to work well with my laptop and now I am wondering, whether there is any info on the compatibility with the Acer XB280HK, because the noname cable managed to work with any screen I tested, except for the XB280HK (including another LG 4K 60Hz DP 1.2 Screen, without G-Sync tho).
The only two things I consider a possible reason for my setup not working is either a bad adapter or problems regarding G-Sync (because I believe the Thunderbolt 3 port is attached to the Intel HD 630 in my XPS, not the GTX 1050 which actually supports G-Sync. But anyways NVIDIA says the screens should also work with G-Sny incompatible GPUs)
Has anyone used any of the plugable adapters with this monitor?
