I am new to the NUC-scene but I have some questions. First of all I would like to thank everyone who responds and tries to help me out. Some months ago I bought a Intel® NUC 11 Lite Kit - NUC11TNHi7 barebone from this website: https://www.alternate.be/Intel/NUC-11-Lite-Kit-NUC11TNHi7-barebone/html/product/1803796
At the moment I have a 32" 4k 60hz screen connected to it being Dell S3221qs - https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/dell-32-curved-4k-uhd-monitor-s3221qs/apd/210-axlh/monitors-monitor-accessories
I am looking into making my workspace bigger and am considering several options:
1. add another one of that 32" that I have, is that an option? Will everything go smooth?
2. buy an ultrawide monitor like Samsung CRG9 Dual-QHD Curved Odyssey (5120x1440 Resolution) -
-> will it be able to get those 120hz and that resolution?
3. Buy the new LG 40WP95C-W (5120x2160 -> my favorite reso since 5120x1440 isn't so high) - https://www.lg.com/hk_en/monitor/lg-40wp95c-w
-> will it be able to run those 5120x1440 and those 72hz?
Many choices to make, many doubts about them; thank you up ahead.
1. The maximum supported resolution depends on type and size of memory installed on your NUC as well. For maximum supported resolution please refer to section 3.2 in the Technical Product Specification.
2. You will find additional information in the Multiple Display Configuration Options for Intel® NUC Kits NUC11TN document.
Hope this will help
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I understand that you have some inquiries about your Intel® NUC 11 Pro Kit NUC11TNHi7.
Based on the information from Ark about your Intel® NUC 11 Pro Kit NUC11TNHi7, it supports up to 4 displays and the resolutions supported are the following:
- Max Resolution (HDMI)‡ 4096x2304@60Hz
- Max Resolution (DP)‡ 7680x4320@60Hz
- Max Resolution (eDP - Integrated Flat Panel)‡ 4096x2304@60Hz
You can see more details in the following links:
- NUC: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/205605/intel-nuc-11-pro-kit-nuc11tnhi7.html
- NUC's CPU: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/208662/intel-core-i71165g7-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-70-ghz.html
Bear in mind that this info only applies if you use a straight connection (HDMI to HDMI, DP to DP), this is because the adapter may not work or limit some features for the graphics part.
I cannot advise you which monitor to buy, however, bear in mind the information previously provided and the recommendation as well. If you encounter any issues, you may find useful information in the following link:

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Intel Customer Support Technician
Thank you both for your assistance, for some reason I wasn't able to find the right information on the web after a couple of hours of browsing. I do still have 1 question though, wherever I look on those pages, I don't notice anything more than 60hz, is that correct?
Have a lovely day
"...wherever I look on those pages, I don't notice anything more than 60hz, is that correct?" - it is not correct.
Please read again my post and the linked by me documents (section 3.2 in the TPS). You will find that in addition to the 60Hz limit for the Intel Integrated Graphics, to support 5120x1440 resolution, you need:
1. You need to have RAM with sufficient memory bandwidth availability (see para. 3.2.1 in TPS) - you need two SODIMMs (for Dual Channel Mode), 16GB or 32GB, DDR4 3200 modules.
2. You displays should be connected to the DP ports (USB C).
Thank you for your reply. I understand now that 5120x1440 only is supported when their is enough bandwith, but could I go for a lower resolution to get more than 60hz? My apologees for still not understanding.
I doubt that lowering the resolution will enable Integrated Graphics Device (IGD) to run at higher frequency. Your NUC is equipped with Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7 Processor which integrates Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics IGD. This IDG renders graphics at 1.30 GHz maximum frequency. In my opinion, if you want display video at higher refresh rate, you may buy and external Graphics Processor Unit (eGPU).
For more explanation please refer to What Is Refresh Rate and Why Is It Important?.
Hope this will help
I doubt that lowering the resolution will enable Integrated Graphics Device (IGD) to run at higher frequency.
even an old HD520/530 (Skylake) is able to drive a QHD (2560 x 1440) @ 144 Hz.
There is no artificial 60Hz limit.
DP1.4 theoretically supports refresh rates for that are limited by the available data rate
uncompressed RGB 8Bit per channel
5120 x 2160 ca 90Hz
5120x 1440 ca 150Hz
I see no reason why a i7-1165G7 should not support 5120x2160 @ 72 Hz in a dual channel RAM configuration,
