Thanks to their standard universal "Plug-and-Display" USB 3.0 cable technology, DisplayLink claim in their latest press release that they solve "the 5K connectivity problem and equally enables non-5K PC, notebooks, and tablets to connect to 5K displays."

To prove their point, they're using a stock Microsoft Surface Pro III connected over a standard USB 3.0 cable to a DisplayLink-based docking station, this docking station is connected to a Dell 5K UltraSharp UP2715K 27" Monitor, through the implementation of DisplayLink's latest 5K chipset.
