Windows users can access the docking station’s 8K 30Hz capability through one of the supported HDMI port in the rear.
There are a few things to note, however. Firstly, working with this many external monitors requires users to first install the Displaylink software to ensure the ports and displays play nicely together. Secondly, the dock is not compatible with M2 Apple products.
The front of the docking station has one SD and Micro SD slot (at 104 MB/s), a 3.5 mm audio jack, one USB-A 3.1 (10 Gbps), and USB-C 3.1 (10 Gbps). At the rear are two 5 Gbps USB-A, one DisplayPort (4K 60Hz), one HDMI (
