Best adapter - USB 3.1 to 3440x1440 + Ethernet
I'm a little bit lost between all the amazing adapters that you sell.
My Laptop has Intel i5-8265U CPU (So with the Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU), so it can theoretically support a resolution of [email protected] But in fact no, because Asus equiped it with one HDMI 1.4 port so my new screen with 3440x1440px don't work properly.
I've got two USB ports : 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A & 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C
If I'm right, USB 3.2 Gen 1 <=> SuperSpeed USB <=> USB 3.1 Gen 1 but, i'm cleary confuse between all the names. Sure thing : ss letters (and only ss letters) is print next to the two ports on my laptop case.
My USB-C don't have DisplayPort or thunderbolt compatibilities.
It is possible that one of your adapter allow me to use my new screen at [email protected] ? (HDMI or DP : doesn't matter)
If so, what is the best adapter for each of the following scenarios:
A - One adapter for just one screen ?
B - One adapter for one screen and ethernet ?
C - One adapter for one screen, ethernet and USB ?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help !
Thank you for taking the time to post in our community!
You are correct that USB 3.2 Gen 1, USB 3.1 Gen 1 and Superspeed USB do all refer to the same type of USB that supports 5 Gbps bandwidth.
In order to meet the video bandwidth requirements of 3440x1440 resolution we would need to use an adapter that can support up to 4k at 60Hz.
While we unfortunately do not have any adapters that can support 4k 60Hz for a single monitor, we do have dual monitor options that would work even when using just one monitor with them.
If you want to connect just the monitor, I recommend our USB32DP24K60: https://www.startech.com/en-us/display-video-adapters/usb32dp24k60
For both a monitor and ethernet, I would recommend USBA2DPGB: https://www.startech.com/en-us/universal-laptop-docking-stations/usba2dpgb
Lastly for connecting the monitor, ethernet and USB devices, the best option would be our DK30A2DHU: https://www.startech.com/en-us/universal-laptop-docking-stations/dk30a2dhu
