    Hello there,

    Is there any possible solution to connect a Dell UP2715K to the new MBP via TB3?
    Are the any adapters to convert one TB3 into two Display Ports for example? Or is there any other possibility? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks.
    (Looks like the Us price just went up from $76 to $99).

    Perhaps someone can post here if/when they get 2x UP2715k monitors running Ok from the latest MBPr/15(2016).

    Plugable Thunderbolt-3 Dual-DisplayPort Adaptor.
    There is another similar device [ http://plugable.com/products/tbt3-dp2x ] - "Supports a single 5120×2880@60 (5K) display if both DisplayPort outputs are connected to a 5K-capable display".

    But... "Windows based PCs only." And the site specifically states that the Plugable adaptor does not work with the Apple MacBook Pro (Late 2016).

    There seems to be no mention (that I can find) of the referenced Startech adaptor working with Mac systems, so that remains unresolved. Until they state clearly that it will work - or someone runs a test I guess.

    *Update. Startech now specify Windows-only too.
