idk if this is the same one but I found this on amazon and one review says [email protected] and freesync surprisingly is supported

Edit: nvm that was only for the miniDisplayport variety

Ok, so thats another beast entirely. Thats more a docking station than KVM. Also only supports 1 host looks like. IOGear has plenty of affordable KVMs that support 2 hosts under 20 bucks. For the ethernet portion, a cheap network switch can be had for under 20 bucks on amazon. Needing display port will be a bit more pricey but a kvm that uses i it can be gotten for under 90 bucks. https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-2-port-DisplayPort-Switch-Built/dp/B00UVH9PRQ/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1515269031&sr=1-3&keywords=kvm+displayport for example might suit your needs.

Let’s think logically here: if you’re getting it with DP but you’re not getting it with HDMI 2.0, it’s most likely a problem with the HDMI, not anything else you’re doing. I see you’re just looking for a solution that won’t have you swapping cables to the DP, why not invest in a high quality DP splitter? I am not endorsing that specific one, merely submitting as an example.

If your monitor is 4K this might not be ideal bc it only supports 4K at 6 HZ. Plug kb, mouse and monitor into box, plug box into USB and display ports on Mac and PC. Press the button to switch which computer is using the kb, mouse, and monitor.

Then I think you shit out of luck at your price range. You can’t get a switch that handles 4K and 100hz this is $80 has bad reviews and is 4K at 30hz.

Why do you need to run the macbook at 100hz 4k can it even push that? I’d go USB-C->HDMI

I have never seen an USB C KVM device.

You could just switch HDMI and USB separately. This has the biggest chance of working without a hitch as there are no signals split or converted, however it requires switching twice every time and two cables plugged into each laptop.

You could use two USB C to DisplayPort adapters (preferably USB C to DP + USB A) and then a DisplayPort KVM or this one has cables built on and one MST hub to split the DP signal after switching.

The forthcoming solution works if you do not need audio.

  1. Two of http://www.cablematters.com/pc-952-101-usb-c-multiport-adapter-usb-c-dock-with-usb-c-to-hdmi-dual-4k-display-2x-usb-20-fast-ethernet-and-60w-pd.aspx or Amazon: http://a.co/d/1dYNWI6
  2. From each two HDMI to DVI cables into https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gefen-2×2-DVI-Switcher-DVI-USB-Audio/183228198779 I believe this is the remote: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gefen-CAT5-RMT4-h6/173401195500 but I have some problem figuring out which 12V power supply is for it. Once it’s in hand that’s much easier to see.
  3. Run two more of those cables into your monitors. DVI and HDMI without audio and some remote control stuff PCs do not really use are the same.

You could get something like a switch, but they’re quite expensive.
