P52 external displays possible WITHOUT nvidia? Maybe via one of the docks?

Thanks for any help with this! Getting a new P52 tomorrow if it works out.

 

Does anyone know of an option to connect external displays to the P52 without utilizing the nvidia card?

Since the external ports are wired through the nvidia card, I won't be able to use external monitors without it.

 

Could this be done with the Thunderbolt or the USB-C docks?

 

I'm asking this because I'd like to pass-through the dGPU to a VM while still being able to use external monitors on the host.

 

Thanks a lot!

Dear customer,

unfotunately, there is no way to connect the external display w/o nVIDIA Gfx.

All the external display ports including thunderbolt and HDMI are connected nVIDIA.

Thank you very much for the competent reply!

 

I have more questions regarding Thunderbolt while nvidia is off, but that doesn't really fit this topic anymore, so I'll open a new thread.
