Sonnet launches an adapter for connecting two monitors to M1 Macs

Sonnettech has announced the launch of its new product – DisplayLink USB Type-A to Dual DisplayPort Adapter and DisplayLink USB Type-A to Dual HDMI Adapter that allows you to connect two monitors to Apple M1 Mac computers at the same time.

Sonnet DisplayLink USB Type-A to Dual DisplayPort Adapter for M1 Macs

This adapter is available in two options – with a choice of DisplayPort Adapter or MacBook HDMI Adapter and supports up to two 4K displays with a refresh rate of 60 Hz using a single computer port, and also provides bus-powered operation, which is important.

Each adapter comes with a non-detachable USB-A cable and a USB-A to USB-C adapter. Adapters connect to a computer’s USB or Thunderbolt port for bus operation.

These adapters are said to be ideal for Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops, which feature two Thunderbolt/USB-4 ports for connecting additional monitors. However, one of them is used to charge the computer, so these computers support only one external display connection. The new adapters from Sonnet solve this problem and allow you to connect two 4K 60Hz displays to one port on your computer while keeping the other port for charging or connecting additional peripherals.

Most dual-port adapters are not compatible with M1 Macs or support lower resolutions. However, the manufacturer claims that their DisplayLink Dual Display adapters support two 4K displays at 60Hz. The audio signal also passes through this adapter.

Price and availability

The new DisplayLink USB Type-A to Dual DisplayPort Adapter and DisplayLink USB Type-A to Dual HDMI Adapter Mac M1 is already available for pre-order on the at $149.99 each.
