    Apples support site says the early 2016 MacBook supports 4K @ 60hz over HDMI with a compatible adapter. The question is, which adapter supports this?

    I have been looking for days, can't seem to find anything that claims 60hz output at that resolution AND allows charging at the same time.

    I figured maybe just get a USB-C hub and an individual adapter, but I can't find USB-C hubs that give you more than a single USB-C port to use for charging.

    Anyone have a solution?

    Caldigit looks like a good solution for you, see "Is 4K @ 60Hz monitor supported?" in the FAQ for some limitations.

    I'm good with the limitations of Caldigit, and it looks like this may be a good solution but it's a bit expensive at $135. If Apple had just included one more port I wouldn't need it. Ugh.

    Does anyone else have a solution? If not, I'll probably end up with this one.

    This looks like a good adapter, but it does not charge the MacBook which won't work for me. It would have been perfect had Apple included two USB's instead of one. However, I did look around club-3D's site and found what looks like a good adapter.

    This has charging capability, an extra USB port, and HDMI output with 60hz support for 4k. I found it on Amazon for $59 after coupon, so I placed the order. Hopefully it works! At half the price of the Caldigit solution, the price was a lot less painful.
