The new USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter claiming to deliver 60Hz at high resolutions over HDMI… well, apparently doesn’t?
Apple’s newest [USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter](https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MUF82AM/A/usb-c-digital-av-multiport-adapter) claims it lets you connect to an HDMI-display with resolutions like 3840×2160 @ 60Hz but even lower resolutions than that cannot deliver the rate/resolution/quality it promises.
I was able to take a couple screenshots and [set them side by side](https://www.dropbox.com/s/5ytodxe35vprkph/1080-30Hz-60Hz-Comp.png?dl=0). Both at 1920×1080, one at 30Hz (left) and another one at 60Hz (right), on the same external display.
Here are the [refresh rates available](https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5b8l1pcd8parxp/Available%20Resolutions.png?dl=0) to my display. Only the 30Hz ones at all resolutions deliver a crisp image. All the other ones blur details and of course shouldn’t be an acceptable solution.
Can someone provide some input in this regard? I’ve always known that you usually don’t want to connect to monitors via HDMI because of this specific reason: unsupported 60Hz and only able to deliver 30Hz… but am I missing something or is the Product Information on this device a bit misleading?
I am by no means an expert on connectors and I am only going along with what they promised, even knowing that there may be a hard limitation to deliver what they claimed.
EDIT: thanks to u/cogit4se for your insight on how to enable the HDMI 2.0 on my monitor. It works! Yay!
