Apple Silicon MacBook Air or MacBook Pro owners aren't limited to one external display any more with two new HyperDrive 4K HDMI docks.




Hyper has released two new plug-and-play adapters that allow M1 Mac owners to use two 4K HDMI displays from a single USB-C connection.

Hyper achieved this by utilizing a hybrid USB Display design that combines DisplayPort Alt Mode and Silicon Motion InstantView plug-in-play video technology that requires no software drivers.

There are two 4K HDMI display adapters that you can choose from. The first is the HyperDrive Dual 4K HDMI 3-in-1 USB-C Adapter. This simple version allows you to attach two HDMI external monitors, one 4K at 60Hz, and one 4K at 30Hz, to your M1 Mac.

It's also compatible with Intel-based Macs, Windows PCs, and Chromebooks.

The ports on the 3-in-1 USB-C adapter include:
  • HDMI 4K 60Hz

  • HDMI 4K 30Hz

  • USB-C PD 100W
Those interested in snagging their own HyperDrive Dual 4K HDMI 3-in-1 USB-C Adapter can head to HyperShop and pick one up for $129.99.




If you're looking for a full-fledged hub, Hyper has also released the HyperDrive Dual 4K HDMI 10-in-1 USB-C Hub. Designed to expand the capabilities of your Mac, the 10-in-1 Hub includes ten essential ports that enable you to connect all of your favorite devices to your Mac.

The ports on the 10-in-1 USB-C Hub include
  • HDMI 4K 60Hz

  • HDMI 4K 30Hz

  • USB-C PD 100W

  • USB-C 5Gbps

  • 2 x USB-A 5Gbps

  • Gigabit Ethernet

  • MicroSD/SD card reader 104MB/s

  • 3.5mm Audio Jack
The HyperDrive Dual 4K HDMI 10-in-1 USB-C Hub is available from HyperShop and currently retails for $199.99.

    4K at 30hz! 
    Just because you can do something, does not mean it is a good idea.

    The 90s called and want their screen vertical refresh rates back... I hope Apple fixes this in their next versions of their laptops. I would have bought an M1 MacBook Air[*] by now if it supported two screens, as one of the customer sites I'm frequently at has that setup.

    [*] I like the weight and the lack of fans.  Processing power just isn't an issue these days, if I'm doing something intensive it's in the cloud anyways.
