So this one supports 60hz on the 12" Macbook? How do you like it?
To clarify, the CalDigit USB-C dock supports 4K at 60Hz only with a special firmware which consequently limits the remaining ports to USB 2 speeds. Such is the limitation of USB-C. Have you requested and installed this firmware, @BeatCrazy?Yes, it definitely does. I think it's great. Very reliable and does everything as described.
Yes, I installed it and used it with an LG 27UD88 monitor.
Because I use the CalDigit like a KVM hub because I have both a MB and a 2016 MBP, and it's easier to just switch a single USB-C between 2 different laptops.Just curious: why aren't you just using the built-in ports on the LG 27UD88, given it eliminates the need for a USB-C hub?
Good to know. However, wouldn't USB-C gen 2 solve this?USB C currently has the following options by design due to bandwidth limitations:
1. USB 3 support + 4K@30hz
2. USB 2 support + 4k@60hz
You won't find a hub that does both USB 3 and 4k@60hz because the port can't handle it currently.
