KVM switch with DP and 240hz

Heyy, I'm looking for a KVM switch for a single monitor (and min 2 usbs) with displayport in/out and support for 240hz (I have a Alienware AW2518HF 25") 

I've been browsing on amazon but everything I saw said 4k60-30hz but no specifications for max refresh rate on 1080p

The first DP input will be from my PC on an RTX 3070, second one will be my macbook (which ill have to use a DP -> USBC cable for)

You're going to pay a pretty penny for that.

RIP thats a lot for just a KVM, is it just the fact that it supports 240hz that makes it expensive?

Pretty much I suppose. High refresh rate KVMs (and even 1440p/4k ones if I'm honest) are a bit of niche market. It's only recently have more and more people been seeking out for such a product. Your bog standard KVM like the Trendnet one I'm using costs like 20 maybe 30 bucks. Which is why I typically recommend people to just use their monitor to handle input switching and a cheap KVM to handle your mouse and keyboard. Many monitors can also handle audio output via DP or HDMI too so that's one less thing to worry about if you're using speakers.
