So I’m looking for a nice Dockingstation to my Macbook 12″ (2016). So far I’ve been using de Club3D Mini-Dock with HDMI 2.0, which gives me the possibility of adding a 4k@60hz display while charging and having one USB-A Port. I’d like to add some more ports without loosing the possibility of having 4k@60hz on my external monitor.
I’ve been looking at the USB-C Dockingstation (CSV-1560) which has a Displayport 1.2 and several USB-A 3.0 Ports. The Specifications say it supports 4k@30hz. Now I’m wondering, why that is. DP 1.2 via altmode should support 4k@60hz. Of Course the USB-A Ports would only be supporting speeds of USB 2.0, but that wouldn’t really bother me.
I wonder if there is a reason, the resolution is not supported and also if the resolution really is not supported or if you somehow get it to work. It would be the perfect companion, if it worked.
Thanks and Cheers
