DisplayPort/USB Type-C MST Daisy Chain Connection

With DisplayPort/USB Type-C Multi-Stream Transport (MST) support, you can daisy chain connect up to four (4) monitors.

  1. Connect one end of a DisplayPort/USB Type-C cable to the DisplayPort/USB Type-C Out port of your computer. Then connect the other end of the cable to the DisplayPort In/USB Type-C port of the monitor.
  2. Use another DisplayPort cable to connect to the DisplayPort Out port of the first monitor. Then connect the other end of the cable to the DisplayPort In port of the second monitor.
  3. Repeat Step 2 as needed with up to four (4) monitors.
Your graphics card compatibility and monitor resolution will determine the number of monitors. For example, you can connect four (4) VG2456 (1920 x 1080), two (2) VG2756-2K (2560 x 1440), or two (2) VG2456 and one (1) VG2756-2K.
