How many external monitor can the latest T470/T470s connect to without docking

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know how many external monitor can the latest T470/T470s connect to without a dock?

 

The T470 specs I am considering is:

CPU Operating System Chipset Memory Storage Display Graphics Optical Drive Communication Ports / Media

Intel® Core™ i5-7200U (3M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
Windows® 10 Home 64-bit 
Intel SoC (System on Chip) platform
1 x 8GB DDR4 2133MHz (Max 32GB) / 1 Free Slot
256GB PCIe SSD (NVMe)
14.0" Anti-Glare, FHD (1920 x 1080)
GeForce 940MX GDDR5 2G
N/A
2x2 802.11ac / Bluetooth 4.1
2 x USB 3.1 / 1 x USB 3.0 / 1 x Thunderbolt 3 / 1 x HDMI / 1 x RJ-45 /1 x Dock connector / HD Audio / Realtek ALC3268 codec / stereo speakers 2W x 2 / dual array microphone / combo audio /microphone jack / 4-in-1 reader (MMC, SD, SDHC, SDXC), supports SD 3.0, UHS-l

 

And this is the specs for T470s:

 

CPU Operating System Chipset Memory Storage Display Graphics Optical Drive Communication Ports / Media

Intel® Core™ i5-7200U (3M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
Windows® 10 Home 64-bit

12GB (1 x 4GB DDR4 2133MHz onboard + 1 x 8GB DDR4 2133MHz) (Max20GB)/ 0 Free Slot
256GB PCIe SSD (NVMe)
14.0" Anti-Glare, FHD (1920 x 1080)
Intel HD Graphics 620
N/A
2x2 802.11ac / Bluetooth 4.1
2 x USB 3.1 / 1 x USB 3.0 / 1 x Thunderbolt 3 / 1 x HDMI /1 x RJ-45 / 1 x Dock connector / HD Audio / Realtek ALC3268 codec / stereo speakers 1W x 2 / dual array microphone / combo audio / microphone jack / 4-in-1 reader (MMC, SD, SDHC, SDXC)

 

I am looking to connect to two 24" Dell U2414H, but not sure if I need a dock. Apologies if this was answered somewhere else. Many thanks.

Re: How many external monitor can the latest T470/T470s connect to without docking

Hi,

I tried to do this, however, the USB-C port is used for power. Is there an alternate power adaptor available, or how does one connect power and USB-C to HDMI adaptor at the same time?

Thanks in advance.
