Which DisplayPort and HDMI Specifications Do Targus Docks Support?

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"). Please learn more about DisplayPort with this information. 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. It 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.
