DisplayLink updates USB-Monitor driver, fixes lock-ups

updated 10:15 pm EDT, Tue June 7, 2011

64-bit support, rotated resolutions new to v1.6

DisplayLink has released DisplayLink USB Graphics Macintosh Driver 1.6. The new driver brings performance improvements and enhancements, with up to four external USB-based monitors supported. It fixes a system freeze and a GUI lockup, either of which could occur when waking from sleep, enables 1920x1080 resolutions on capable models, and repairs an incompatibility with AISX-chipped Ethernet products.

Snow Leopard 64-bit compatibility is new with this release, and rotated resolutions are supported in OS X 10.6.3 and higher. OpenGL 3D support is not available, limiting the use of Keynote presentations and iPhoto slideshows on DisplayLink-attached monitors.

The v1.6 driver does not yet support Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, but does support Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.6. A beta driver, v1.7 beta 1, is also launching as a separately-available download with preliminary Lion support.

Supported hardware includes products from Atlona, Gefen, IOGear, Logitec and SIIG, among others, that include DL195-, DL165-, DL125-, DL120- and DL160-based devices. Both drivers are free downloads and available now on the DisplayLink website.
