Hey folks, what started as a review of a couple of USB-C hubs has turned into an investigation of why USB-C hubs are so limited. They all seem to have the same mix of ports: USB-A, HDMI, SD card, maybe Ethernet, but never, say, DisplayPort out or DVI out.
I can’t find good information online about why this is, other than tech news articles spitballing about bandwidth limitations. But this is TidBITS and we don’t want to spitball! I know many of you are (or were) engineers who would actually understand this stuff, so if anyone has insight into the state of things, I’m all ears, and we’ll credit you in the eventual article.
