DisplayLink launches new USB 3.0 Docking Chipset featuring dual 2560x1600 resolution

PALO ALTO, Calif., – January 7th, 2014 – DisplayLink®, the leading provider of USB Graphics technology, today announced the official launch and products shipping with their new DL-3950 USB 3.0 Universal Docking Chipset. The latest chipset supports up to two 2560x1600 DisplayPort monitors along with Gigabit Ethernet, 5.1 channel audio, and is being demonstrated in the new Targus® ACP7101USZ at CES 2014. 

The new DL-3950 forms the new flagship member of DisplayLink’s award winning DL-3000 chipset family and is available from Q1 2014 for volume production. The fully integrated docking chip set enables the highest USB graphics resolution to-date with dual 2560x1600 and new dual 2560x1440 resolutions offered on the latest monitors. 

“The new DL-3950 pushes USB docking stations to a new level of functionality for the productivity worker,” said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, “We’re excited to offer an integrated solution that can support dual 2K resolution displays. As with all DisplayLink based products, further expansion to even more monitors is possible using DisplayLink Certified USB adapters.  The DL-3950 enabled Targus ACP7101USZ Universal USB 3.0 DV2K Docking Station with Power can be further expanded using a Targus ACA039US dual head USB graphics adapters for maximum flexibility.” 

“DisplayLink’s new DL-3950 was an obvious choice for Targus for the newest version of our much acclaimed ACP71USZ Universal USB 3.0 DV Docking Station with Power,” said Ron DeCamp, Senior Product Manager at Targus. “We were keen to increase the ACP71USZ’s capabilities to support dual 2K monitors and the DL-3950 from DisplayLink does exactly that.  The new ACP7101USZ also features charging capability for a wide variety of PC notebooks making it the perfect universal solution for office hot desk docking.” 

The DL-3950 and the new Targus ACP7101USZ are being shown for the first time at CES 2014.  Both will be demonstrated at ShowStoppers for the Press and at DisplayLink’s booth on the CES show floor with dual 2K monitors, Gigabit Ethernet, and audio connections running simultaneously.
