Frequently Asked Questions

Installation

Active adapters are required if adapting DisplayPort to HDMI or DVI monitors. Active adapters use additional chips to make the conversion inside the adapter. Passive DisplayPort to HDMI or DVI will not work with this device.

Troubleshooting

If you set your display to [email protected] and connect a display to the DisplayPort output on the laptop docking station, your display may flicker. This issue only affects certain monitors and is a result of an interoperability issue between the hardware used in the display and the docking station. This issue is not specific to StarTech.com docking stations.

To resolve this issue, try any of the following:

  • Connect a USB-C to DisplayPort cable from the USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port on the docking station to the DisplayPort input on the display. (StarTech.com product ID for the USB-C to DisplayPort cable: CDP2DPMM1MB.)
  • Connect a USB-C to HDMI 2.0 cable from the USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port on the docking station to the HDMI input on the display. (StarTech.com product ID for the USB-C to HDMI 2.0 cable: CDP2HD4K60.)
  • If you are using a dual monitor setup, connect a dual DisplayPort adapter from the USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port on the docking station to the DisplayPort input on the displays. (StarTech.com product ID for the Thunderbolt 3 dual DisplayPort adapter: TB32DP2.)
  • Disable MST (Multi Stream Transport) or DisplayPort 1.2 mode on your display and enable [email protected] Refer to the information provided by the manufacturer for assistance. 

If your computer is not detecting your Thunderbolt™ 3 device, try the following:

  • Update the Thunderbolt software on your Thunderbolt 3 host device.
  • Update the Thunderbolt controller NVM firmware on your Thunderbolt 3 host device.
  • Update the Thunderbolt controller drivers.
  • Update your motherboard BIOS or UEFI.

For more information about how to update the software, firmware, drivers, and BIOS or UEFI, refer to the website of the manufacturer of the Thunderbolt 3 host device. The following website includes links to some of the manufacturers of Thunderbolt 3 host devices: https://thunderbolttechnology.net/updates. If the manufacturer of your host device is not listed, you should contact the manufacturer or refer to their website for more information.

Before You Buy

Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C connector, but not all host connections, cables, and devices with a USB-C connector support Thunderbolt 3. This means that a USB-C device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 host connection, but a Thunderbolt 3 device is not compatible with a USB-C host connection. Therefore, it is essential to know whether you have a USB-C or a Thunderbolt 3 host, cable, or device.  

To determine if your component is a Thunderbolt 3 device, look for the Thunderbolt 3 symbol. USB-C devices do not include this symbol.  For more information about USB-C, see the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/usb-c-port-capabilites

Components

Thunderbolt™ 3 is the latest version of the Thunderbolt standard for connecting computers and electronic devices. It is capable of the following:

  • Total bandwidth up to 40Gbps. Data transfer speeds are dependent on the other features that you are using in your setup.
  • USB 3.1 Gen 2 support.
  • 4K 60Hz video on one or two separate displays.
  • 5K 60Hz video on a single display.
  • A 10 GbE network connection between two Thunderbolt 3 compatible computers.
  • Up to six devices daisy-chained from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
  • Alternate modes, such as DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W (not all Thunderbolt 3 devices support power delivery).

USB-C and Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C connector, but not all host connections, cables, and devices with a USB-C connector support Thunderbolt 3. This means that a USB-C device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 host connection, but a Thunderbolt 3 device is not compatible with a USB-C host connection. Therefore, it is important to know whether you have a USB-C or a Thunderbolt 3 host, cable, or device.

To determine if your component is a Thunderbolt 3 device, look for the Thunderbolt 3 symbol (shown below). USB-C devices do not include this symbol.  For more information about USB-C, see the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/usb-c-port-capabilites.

Thunderbolt symbol: https://sgcdn.startech.com/005329/media/products/gallery_large/TBLT3MMXM.B.jpg.

Backwards compatibility

If you use an adapter, Thunderbolt 3 host connections are compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 devices. You can use the StarTech.com TBT3TBTADAP to make a Thunderbolt 3 host connections backwards compatible.

Thunderbolt 3 devices are not backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 host connections.

Although the Thunderbolt™ 3 standard is capable of data transfer speeds up to 40Gbps, not every cable can support this bandwidth. For example, cables over a certain length or made with certain materials are only capable of data transfer speeds up to 20Gbps. 

To confirm the capability of your Thunderbolt 3 cable, refer to the information provided by the manufacturer. StarTech.com lists the capabilities of the Thunderbolt 3 cables on the individual product pages.

There are two different Thunderbolt 3 cable symbols: the 20Gbps symbol and the 40Gbps symbol. The 20Gbps symbol is composed of the Thunderbolt 3 symbol, and the 40Gbps symbol is composed of the Thunderbolt 3 symbol and the number three. These images are shown below.

Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C connector, but not all host connections, cables, and devices with a USB-C connector support Thunderbolt 3. This means that a USB-C device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 host connection, but a Thunderbolt 3 device is not compatible with a USB-C host connection. Therefore, it is important to know whether you have a USB-C or a Thunderbolt 3 host, cable, or device.

No, you cannot use this device to increase the maximum number of displays that a video card supports. For example, if your video card only supports up to three displays and you add this device to your setup, your display limit is still three displays.

If you have connected more than one of this device to the same computer and are experiencing display issues, you should make sure that your video card can support the number of displays that you are using in your setup.

Common Issues

MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13-inch, and Mac Mini systems using the new Apple M1 chip support only a single external display over the Thunderbolt 3 ports, even when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 docking station or adapter with more than one video output. This limitation also applies to using multiple Thunderbolt or Type C display adapters on both Type C ports. This is not a limitation of StarTech.com products specifically, and Apple lists support for only one external display in the Tech Specs for Video Support on the M1 MacBook Pro 13” [external link to apple.com]. Turning off the laptop display or using clamshell mode does not change this.

One option for docking that allows more than one external display with an Apple M1-based Mac is to use a USB-C DisplayLink-based docking station or video adapter that requires a driver install. One dual monitor example is our DK30CHDDPPD, but please contact StarTech.com support for a recommendation based on your specific setup.

Please note: this single monitor limitation does not affect Intel-based Macs with Thunderbolt 3.
