Hi everyone - new to the forums, so please forgive me for any formatting errors.
I’m looking into getting the 2-monitor KVM switch. The first monitor is a Dell S2716DGR. It’s a 144Hz, 1440p G-SYNC display. The second is just a 1080p 60Hz from Acer I’ve had for awhile, I can get the model number if necessary. I would also be connecting a keyboard, mouse, and a USB headset.
The first computer is my desktop, with a hybrid 1080 Ti as the video adapter running Windows 10, I can pass along more info if needed. The second is my work laptop. It’s a Dell Latitude, and it comes with Dell’s E-port plus advanced dock. Here’s a link to the dock on Amazon.
The dock has two DP 1.2 ports, that would be going into the KVM switch. It has USB-3.0 Type A as well. From the pictures on the store website it looks that the KVM switch uses USB 3.0 Type-B. Would I be able to use a USB 3.0 Type B to Type A cable just fine then?
Assuming I use good quality DP cables, as that seems to be the biggest problem reported, do any of you foresee any bandwidth bottle-necking? Do you think the dock may be an issue at all?
