Plugable announced two new 4K dual display adapters, the USBC-6950U and the USBC-6950UE. Both adapters allow you to connect a PC to two UHD/4K monitors at once. According to Plugable, they are the "only adapters that support two HDMI and DisplayPort Displays." The USBC-6950U and USBC-6950UE are available now for $89 and $99, respectively.
The devices are mainly identical, except for the fact that the USBC-6950UE has an Ethernet port. Both adapters support up to two HDMI or DisplayPort displays simultaneously with resolutions of 4K at 60Hz.
Both of the adapters come with an attached USB-C cable but also include a USB-A 3.0 adapter that allows them to work with older devices. Between the adapter to support USB-C and USB-A and support for HDMI and DisplayPort, both of the Plugable adapters should work with a wide range of PCs.
If you'd like, you can connect three of Plugable's new adapters to the same setup to power up to six displays at once. Just note that to do so you'll need a PC that can output to that many displays at once.
