Default Macbook Air M1 + 2 displays at 75hz

Hello,

I have a MB Air M1 and two external displays at 75hz. Would D3100 or D6000, or any other docking station allow for such a setup?

Hello Szpoti,

Thank you for posting on our forum.

May you please tell me what resolution you would like to have on your two external displays and what ports you would like to use?

Kind regards,
Jakub

Hiya Jakub,

Thanks for replying.

The displays are 24" Phillips 243V7 at 1920 x 1080. I'd like to use their HDMI ports. Obviously, the MB Air M1 only has two Thunderbolt outputs, but doesn't natively support two external displays.

I am running a setup like this!

My laptop is a 13.3" M1 MBA and I have an ASUS ProArt PA278QV and LG 29WN600-W. Both 2560 x 1440 @ 75hz. I extended the displays with a Wavlink Universal 5K Docking Station (Model #69DK1). Got it from newegg for $100

I hope this helps!

DisplayLInk supports frequency up to 60Hz. So if the monitors do support this frequency (as they should), then any DisplayLink dock should be OK.

Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

Simply speaking, any of these devices should be sufficient for your needs.

The one mochabear mentioned will also work.

Best regards,
Jakub

Thank you for your answer.

Nowhere in the documentation have I found any confirmation or denial of whether D3100 or D6000 can support two external displays at 75hz. I fully appreciate that the devices support two external displays at 60hz. But my question is whether they can support those displays at 75hz.

Thanks, mochabear, for your suggestion. Unfortunately in Taiwan, where I live, I don't seem to be able to find that docking station On the other hand, Dell's are pretty common.

Maybe a little too late....

At work: I'm using a D6000 with 3 monitors with a Macbook Pro M1: two with resolution 1920x1080 at 75Mhz and one at 60Mhz. Works just fine.

At home: I'm using a D6000 with 2 monitors with a Macbook Pro M1: one with 4K resolution at 100Mhz and one with resolution 1920x1080 at 60HMhz.

I think your setup will just work.
