NUC with usb-c docking station for multiple DP monitors


Hi, I am considering buying NUC10i5FNK but I would like to confirm it's compatability with my existing docking station which I use to connect 2 Display Port monitors.


The docking station I have is the StarTech TB3CDK2DPUE which is both USB Type C & Thunderbolt 3.


I think I need to confirm that the USBC-Type C connector on the NUC supports both DP Alt Mode and MST. The tech specs are not 100% clear to me and my situation as I am not looking to daisy chain monitors, but use the docking station.


Thanks in advance,

All models in the FN NUC family (Kits and Systems) support DP Alt Mode, MST Hubs and Daisy-Chaining via their USB-C connectors. Only the rear USB-C connector supports Thunderbolt 3, however. Since only a single DP 1.2 output is supplied to each USB-C connector, its bandwidth is shared by all connected monitors. This means that two 4K monitors connected via one USB-C connector will reduce the supportable frequency to 30Hz.


Hope this helps,
