My current setup: A Yoga 710-151KB i5 laptop with 8gb ram, hooked up to a Plugable UD-3900. One 1080p monitor attached to the DVI part of the Plugable. A 2nd 1080p monitor attached to the hdmi section of the plugable. I have an Xbox One that is attached via hdmi to an hdmi switch. The hdmi monitor is also attached to the switch. So basically I have a 2 monitor setup for work with the ability to push a button that turns one monitor into my gaming monitor. It works well.
Now, the Xbox Series X with 4k support is coming out during the holidays. I would like to run it off of a 4k monitor and use a similar setup to what I have. Is there a Plugable hub that would enable me to run 4K at 60hz on the new 4k monitor but keep the 2nd 1080p monitor? Also, if you know, would I need to replace the existing hdmi switch with one that could handle 4k?
This dock supports two DisplayPort or HDMI monitors. You mentioned that your 1080p monitor connects via DVI currently, so you’ll want to make sure that monitor supports an HDMI or DisplayPort connection
While I understand it will be your gaming console connected to the 4K monitor, I just want to remind you that we do not support gaming through our DisplayLink-based docking stations
We haven’t tested our docks through HDMI switches, so we can’t guarantee compatibility there. However, if it works with your UD-3900 dock, that is promising to hear for compatibility
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
