Frequently Asked Questions

1: Will this dock work with any laptop? How do I make sure my laptop works with this dock?

This dock works with laptops with a Thunderbolt 3 port, or with a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort Alt Mode and Power Delivery. To confirm the USB-C port function of your laptop, consult your user manual or contact your laptop’s manufacturer.

2: Do I need to install any drivers to use the dock?

For macOS and Windows 10 and 8.1, the operating system will download and install the necessary drivers automatically. For Windows 7 or Linux, please be sure your Intel Thunderbolt software is installed. You can contact our support team for confirmation.

3: How to deal with screen drop, black screen, or screen flickering issues when connecting to an external monitor?

After the dock has just been connected to the external monitor, it's normal for there to be some degree of flickering. It should go away in a few seconds. If you experience any screen issues after waking up your laptop, restart the dock; If your laptop or the docking station has not been shut down for a long time and you’re experiencing screen issues, please restart the dock.

4: How many external displays can this dock support and what are the maximum resolutions?

This dock supports connection to two external monitors—one connected via the HDMI 2.0 port, and another via the USB-C Thunderbolt 3 downstream port. You can also connect to a third monitor by connecting a USB-C to dual HDMI adapter to the Thunderbolt 3 downstream port. Below are the maximum resolutions:

1) Single monitor: 5K (5120 x 2880 @ 60Hz) via the Thunderbolt 3 downstream port; 4K (4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz) via the HDMI port.

2) Dual monitor: 4K (4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz) via the Thunderbolt 3 downstream port and HDMI port.

3) Triple monitor: 4K (4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz) via the HDMI port; 2 × 4K@30Hz via the Thunderbolt 3 downstream port using a USB-C to dual HDMI adapter.

5: Why does the dock feel warm?

When charging or transferring data at high speed, the dock’s temperature may increase. This heat is dissipated through the aluminum exterior, so it may feel warm to the touch. Don't worry, this is within the normal limits of the dock’s operation.

6: The charging output of the dock is listed as 85W, which is lower than my MacBook charger’s output. Will the dock still be able to power my MacBook?

This dock supports up to 85W of charging via the Thunderbolt 3 port on the back of the dock (indicated with a computer icon). It will charge slower than an 87W/96W MacBook charger, but it will still charge at a relatively high speed.
