Club 3D’s new mst hubs can drive two 4K60 monitors over one cable

Cable manufacturer Club 3D has released four multistream transport hubs to power two displays at 4K at 60Hz. The different mst hubs are suitable for USB-C as well as DisplayPort and HDMI. Two hubs allow combining DP and HDMI displays.

The first two mst hubs make it possible to drive two monitors at 4K60 with two DisplayPort outputs. The CSV-1555 is a USB 3.2 Gen 2 type-c to DisplayPort hub for dual monitor 4K60Hz M/F, designed to connect all USB-C devices that support DP Alt-Mode, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. A single display is supported at 4K120Hz.

The second hub, the CSV-7200, is a DisplayPort 1.4 to DisplayPort hub and is mainly aimed at ultrabooks with a DisplayPort connection. The hub supports the same resolution as the 1555: dual display 3840×2160 pixels at 60Hz and a single monitor at 120Hz. On MacOS, the dual display support is at 30Hz.

The other two hubs combine DisplayPort with HDMI. The CSV-1552 is a USB-C to DisplayPort and HDMI hub, to which an HDMI screen or TV and a monitor with DisplayPort connection can be connected at the same time. In addition, a DisplayPort monitor can run simultaneously with an HDMI monitor at 4K60Hz. A single DisplayPort monitor can even run at 8K30Hz in MST mode on Windows. The CSV-7220 can do the same, but has a DisplayPort connection instead of a USB-C connection.

The previous generation of these MST hubs supported up to twice a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels at 60Hz. The first two new models are already on sale, the other two will follow later this month, according to Club 3D. the CSV-1555 is for sale for 69 euros, the CSV-7200 for 70 euros.
