connect X250 to 3 external displays?

2015-07-06, 1:00 AM

Hi,

 

Is it possible to have the X250 drive 3 external displays using the dock? Can I just connect all three of the external monitors directly to the dock or do I have to daisy chain the monitors using display port?

I do not intend to use the laptop lcd while the machine is docked.

 

Thanks

This shows you only get one VGA out and one DisplayPort out on the dock. If your existing monitors support daisy-chaining over DisplayPort, then I think it should work directly. If your monitors don't support daisy-chaining, try a DisplayPort multistream hub.
