Yes, but only if your computer is equipped with a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort 1.4 (DP 1.4). If you're not sure if your laptop supports DP 1.4, please contact your laptop manufacturer to confirm this important detail.

Examples of known laptops which support DP 1.4:

  • MacBook Pro 15” 2018 / 2019
  • MacBook Pro 16” 2019
  • Surface Pro 7
  • Surface Laptop 3
  • Surface Book 3

If DP 1.4 is not supported, then the maximum resolution and refresh rate of the HDMI port on the USBC-7IN1E adapter is 4K 30Hz.

Please note that the adapter will not drop the USB 3.0 ports to operate at USB 2.0 speeds to support 4K 60Hz. DP 1.4 must be supported for 4K 60Hz.
