I’m looking to get some more resolution for the Libreum 15 rev3 . I’m trying to go with 5k … In the LG UltraFine monitor I can use the thunderbold 3 port utilizing 8 video channels …
1 Thunderbold 3 Input 882 mega pixels per second
Todd says as of rev2 “[USB-C] supports video output on par with the first-gen Thunderbolt channel” … A few search titles imply this is a version of thunderbolt 3.
LG 27MD5KB-B UltraFine 27" 16:9 5K (5120 x 2880) IPS Monitor, 500 cd/m² Brightness, Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C Inputs
The monitor does have a mic and camera that could by-pass the hardware cut switch. I’ll have to live with that, probably OK though given coreboot should make unauthorized access more difficult.
There are various thunderbolt 3 adapters that accept an HDMI + USB-C (or just USB) and provide a thunderbolt connection. I’m not finding any other 5k displays that are known to work on Linux so I guess it is back to the question: is the Librem’s first-gen Thunderbolt support going to work at 5k with this monitor?
