The Plugable UD-ULTCDL USB-C Docking Station provides up to three additional display outputs via a combination of USB-C DisplayPort Alternate Mode (“Alt Mode”) and DisplayLink USB graphics. Up to 60W via USB-C Power Delivery (“PD”) to charge your host computer, Gigabit Ethernet, audio, and expanded USB device connectivity. All through a single USB-C cable.
See important notes regarding Alt Mode and PD compatibility below.
Main HDMI port utilizes USB-C Alt Mode which has a direct “pipeline” to the host graphics processor (GPU), and connected monitor will perform as if natively attached. The 2nd and 3rd outputs are powered by DisplayLink DL-3900 which leverages the host GPU & CPU; these outputs are not recommended for gaming.
Alt Mode and PD Compatibility
Alt Mode video is supported on the MacBook Retina 12″, Alpine Ridge based Thunderbolt 3 motherboards, and Dell XPS 9350 / 9550, Precision 5510. The included power supply can charge compatible host systems with up to 60 watts of PD power. Charging speed is host dependent but behaves as if laptop/tablet were connected to it’s stock charger.
DisplayLink Graphics Compatibility
Windows and Mac users can download DisplayLink drivers at plugable.com/drivers. Windows drivers can also be installed by Windows Update (with existing Internet connection).
DisplayLink graphics require Intel / AMD / NVIDIA GPU and driver. USB graphics require dual-core 1.1GHz+ CPU.
Cannot be mixed with non-DisplayLink USB graphics adapters and drivers (e.g. MCT, j5, or SMSC). HDCP/Blu-ray playback not supported.
Chromebook Pixel 2015. Most current phones & tablets with USB-C ports do not support Alt Mode video output. ASMedia USB 3.1 controllers do not support Alt Mode at this time.
