Hello JustAThousand,

 

Thank you for your response.

 

Both Intel®️ NUC 9 Extreme Kit - NUC9i9QNX and Intel®️ NUC 9 Extreme Compute Element - NUC9i7QNB support 2x Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI* 2.0a. They also support 3 displays.

 

When connecting a discrete graphics card to one of these systems, the system will use the interfaces/graphics output available on the integrated video card. 

 

To obtain more information about the graphics output and number of displays supported by the discrete graphics card, we recommend that you contact the video card manufacturer to get more information about their product.

 

Best regards,

Hello,

 

Yes, it will use the discrete video card.

 

However, I would like to look into this and provide you with more details about the Element Board. I will post back in this thread once I have more information.
