Three monitors (two external and laptop) on Asus ZenBook

Hello, 

I have the following set-up and was going to buy a third monitor. 

AsusZenBook core i7 (8th Gen) with an Intel UHD 620 Graphics Card 

Currently have an external Asus monitor set up via a USB - C DisplayPOrt ASUS ZenScreen 15.6" 1080P Portable Monitor (MB16AC)  

I was going to buy another ASUS zenscreen monitor to hook up to have two external monitors and then the laptop monitor.   I am trying to figure out if my graphics card will support that set up.  I have read conflicting information.

Thanks,
Sean

Since you have a USB-C port that supports either Thunderbolt3 or DisplayPort (DP) Alt. Mode, you can utilize an MST Hub to connect two monitors. Here are examples:

Only thing you need to remember here is that your two monitors will share the DisplayPort 1.2 bandwidth, so 4K@30Hz is best you can possibly do at each monitor. If you are using two 1080p monitors, then no problem.

Hope this helps,

...S
