Why can’t I select 4K resolution on my Mac device on my BenQ 4K monitor?


Regarding the lack of a 4K option in Mac OS via USB-C or DisplayPort, the reason may be that the Mac needs 4-lane bandwidth Main Link to reach 4K resolution on external monitors. Otherwise, a no 4K option issue may occur if DisplayPort/USB-C provide only 2-lane bandwidth. Thus, we suggest you follow these steps as a workaround.
