Which DisplayPort and HDMI Specifications Do Targus Docks Support? | Tech Talk | Discover Targus Blog
The DisplayPort (DP) monitor ports of Targus universal docking stations are all DP1.2a++ compliant except for the ACP77USZ; the ACP77 is DP1.2++ (no "a"). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort for details. All of the docks are HDMI1.4 compliant. The DOCK160, DOCK177, and DOCK180 are HDMI 2.0 compliant. The only docking station to support DisplayPort 1.2a++ Multi-Stream Transport (MST) is the DOCK410USZ. However, Thee DocKtor has noted that late model OS X based Apple MacBooks do not appear to support MST, see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206587 and https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5816449?tstart=0 . It is also appears that the Windows based PC implementations of MST are not always stable; please verify with the PC vendor. Therefore it is recommended that the Targus DOCK410 dual monitor functionality be evaluated with each intended user USB Type-C platform.
