A USB-C connection can support a single display with maximum resolution of 4K at 30Hz (4K at 60Hz is possible but data speed drop from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 speeds) in addition to delivering power and data connections to a MacBook. Solutions typically are available two types: dongles and tethered docking channels.
Dongles like Apple’s USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter offer information and energy a la carte having an HDMI or VGA connection, but offer limited expansion that is port benefit of portability. Tethered USB-C docking stations, such as for instance Henge Docks Stone, offer extensive slot expansion choices and incorporated energy distribution to charge the MacBook, along with supporting a display that is external.
