My 4K monitor only has 1 display port and 2 HDMI inputs that do only 30Hz.

I'm looking to connect a second monitor using that one display port. Is there such a device that will allow me to do so? For example some sort of switch that will allow me to toggle between the two monitors using that one display port on the monitor? I know with HDMI there is such a device, but I haven't seen any for DP.

If so, please provide me with a link.

Thanks in advance!

There's not enough bandwidth on DisplayPort 1.2 to do multi-stream transport for a 4k display. I assume you want to use these monitors at the same time?

And yes HDMI has switches, but you can't use the outputs simultaneously. There's only a single display output supported at-once.

It would be to use one at a time as opposed to simultaneously. So imagine a box that allows me to switch between monitor 1 (via DP) on computer 1 and monitor 1 (via DP) on computer 2
