    Can you use HDMI, Display port at the same time?


    I'm using the built in intel graphics (HD Graphics 4600) my motherboard has HDMI,Display port. I would like to use two monitors for extended desktop.

    I don't know if it will work or if i should just buy a
    dedicated card.

    You never mentioned 3 monitors. Your first post states 2 monitors. Doing a quick search, I found this....it may help.

    You can certainly use 2 as mine is HD 4600 and I can use 2 monitors.

    To use 3 you would probably need 1 HDMI and 2 daisy chained DisplayPort, or 3 daisy chained DisplayPort.

    This assumes DisplayPort 1.2 with MST. My Dell monitor has that and it states 2 external monitors to itself, presumably making 3 in all.

    Hi there

    You can use 2 HDMI monitors -- simply get a display port -->HDMI adapter. You'll need 1.2 version though for Max display resolution -- depends on your graphics card and your monitors but at least 1 of them with your card should be capable of 4K resolution.

    Once you've use a monitor with proper 4K resolution you'll never want to go back -- even a 14 inch laptop seems no better than a Mobile phone screen !!!!!!!!

    Cheers
