Featuring the DisplayLink DL-3100 USB 3.0 graphics chipset, the Plugable UGA-3000 enables multiple monitors with any laptop or desktop (one adapter required per monitor, up to 14 on Windows PCs). Multitask with a dedicated monitor for each document or application.
USB graphics adapters work by rendering 2D/3D with your computer's CPU and GPU, and then compressing and transmitting the pixels that change over USB. Dual core or 2Ghz or better CPU and 2GB of RAM recommended. Best suited for web and productivity software, not 3D gaming or motion video playback.
Windows 8.1/8/7 64 and 32 bit, XP SP2+ 32 bit. Drivers can be automatically downloaded from Windows Update.
Supports monitors and PC-compatible TVs up to 2048x1152 or 1920x1200 (1920x1080 for Analog VGA)
Requires Intel / AMD / nVidia main GPU and driver with Windows Aero enabled. USB graphics requires dual core or 2 Ghz or better CPU and 2GB RAM for best performance.
Does not support HDCP, and will not allow for playback of encrypted Bluray disks. Not recommended for gaming. Cannot be mixed with non-DisplayLink USB graphics adapters and drivers (e.g. MCT, j5, or SMSC).
If converting DVI output to HDMI, signal will carry video only, not audio.
Not compatible with ARM-based Windows (MS Surface) or Windows RT. Vista Home Basic, Win7 Starter Edition disable multiple monitors and are not supported.
