I want a hub/splitter/device that takes

input: one usb-c in (with displayport alternate mode)

  1. output 1: one usb-c video out (displayport alternate mode)

  2. output 2: one or more data outputs (can be usb type c or usb type a)

I don't need power delivery. After searching for a long time, I haven't found any device that supports that, despite there being 10.000 different usb hubs.

    Why do you need USB-C display-out instead of DisplayPort?

    @JMY1000 because my display only has USB type C connector and no physical DisplayPort connector: Asus ZenScreen MB16AC

There is a good chance that with Thunderbolt 4 I will finally get the hardware I want. Since all Thunderbolt 3 devices could also pass USB C DisplayPort alternate mode. And assuming Thunderbolt 4 keeps this feature and now adds hubs, I have a solution where I can split off a USB-C DisplayPort signal.

This is highly speculative but it makes sense. Price could be around $149.00 according to OWC.




Looks like there is now a docking station with USB-C data, USB-C displayport out and USB-A hub. Available with Thunderbolt 3 or regular USB-C host connection.


It's just a bit pricey at USD ~250
