Hyper's Latest Hubs Let You Connect Two 4K Displays to an M1 MacBook Using a Single Port

Hyper today announced the release of two new HyperDrive hubs that allow M1 models of the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro to connect to two 4K displays over HDMI in a plug-and-play manner with no drivers required.

hyperdrive dual 4k display hdmi hubs
There is a 3-in-1 version of the hub with two HDMI ports and a USB-C Power Delivery port for up to 100W of pass-through charging, and a 10-in-1 version of the hub that offers those same ports with the addition of another USB-C port, two USB-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, microSD and SD card slots, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Hyper says both hubs deliver dual 4K HDMI video output over a single USB-C connection to M1 MacBook models by using a combination of both DisplayPort Alt Mode and SiliconMotion InstantView plug-and-play video technology. After connecting the hub to the Mac, users must open the HyperDisplay app that appears on the desktop.

Keep in mind that on both of the hubs, one HDMI port supports 60Hz and the other is limited to 30Hz, which may be a dealbreaker for some users.

The 3-in-1 hub is priced at $129.99 in the United States and is available on Hyper's website, while the 10-in-1 hub runs for $199.99.

If MacOS properly supported the DisplayPort MST industry standard, Mac users would be able to daisy chain DP monitors or use any of the available MST hubs on the market. When looking at DP MST hubs from different manufacturers, there is usually a “Not compatible with Mac” warning on the page.

This is not a hardware compatibility issue since an Intel Mac booted into Windows works with MST just fine. What is Apple’s reason for still not supporting MST after all these years? It is some petty attempt to “convince” people to buy Thunderbolt monitors?

One of the 2 displays being limited to 30Hz should make this a non-starter for most people.

30Hz vs 60Hz for a computer monitor is a big deal. This technical compromise should not be underestimated. It should be mentioned in the article IMO.
I agree. 4K at 30Hz is absolutely horrible.

Only one HDMI port offers 60Hz 4K, the other is 30Hz. Can the M1 Macbook Air/Pro even power 2 x 60Hz 4K displays?

EDIT: Also, I'd be interested in learning more about this "InstantView" technology. The official website doesn't properly explain what it is. Does it compress the image? If so, is the compression lossy? Should be a pretty important factor in your buying decision as well.

Forget the hub. Where can I buy cables like that? No snaking and curling and overlapping. They just sit there in perfectly straight paths, without tape or clips or anything, and at the perfect length! Wow! The future is now.

If you're second monitor is used primarily for static images or stock/investment apps, it could certainly be tolerable.
