Plugable releases USB-C or USB 3.0 Quad HDMI Adapter

Plugable has launched a solution for extending laptop displays up to four screens, even on M1 and M2 Macs that would otherwise only support one external monitor. 

The new USB-C or USB 3.0 Quad HDMI Adapter (USBC-768H4) adds four extended HDMI screens through a single USB-C or USB 3.0 port—all with a sharp 1920×1080@60Hz resolution.

The Quad HDMI Adapter is available now on Amazon for $119.00 with a $10 off coupon. It features a six inch flat and flexible cable, and an included USB-C to USB-A adapter. Both stow away in the bottom of the device for easy transport and storage.

Requiring only a single USB-C or USB-A port, the unit gets all of its power from the host. With a Silicon Motion Chipset and two HDMI ports on each side of the adapter, users can expect resolutions of up to 1920×1080@60Hz on all screens.

With the included USB-A adapter, the Quad HDMI Adapter adds four HDMI displays to almost any computer running Windows 10 and newer, and macOS 11+. That includes Macs with M1 or M2 chips that would otherwise only support one external monitor. The graphics adapter does require a driver download. 

With Windows machines, the update is automatic though users can also install manually for better results. On a Mac, this is accomplished through the InstantView App.
