Nuc7i dual monitor

I would love to buy a NUC7i5 but can't find a list of

 

multiple USB-C (Display port) to HDMI Cable to select from, I do understand I

 

can only need and use ONE. I also see

 

many post on / https://communities.intel.com

 

about usb-c to HDMI cables that don't work.

 

Not going to buy one until I can confirm a cable to buy. Also, this ONE ISSUE has me researching other

 

NUC like computer that hopefully have 2 video ports like any combination of

 

HDMI and DisplayPort. Also, kind of HATE

 

the idea of tying up my One Thunderbolt 3 port for an HDMI Cable would have preferred

 

to give up an USB 3 port for DisplayPort.

 

I also find the information about this on https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005571/mini-pcs.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005571/mini-pcs.html

 

completely inaccurate because it implies you can connect two monitors with

 

PURELY HDMI Cables and yet the NUC7i5 only have one. And the link to the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005571/mini-pcs.html Multiple Display Configuration Wizard completely

 

has no info on any of the NUC7's

OR like a number of laptops I have seen have 2 USB-C / Thunderbolt Ports

Hi BadPasswordRule

 

 

I understand you are trying to get an Intel® NUC for dual monitor configuration. Thank you for choosing Intel products. Let me help you on this matter.

 

 

For dual display configuration, you need HDMI or Display Port connections or the USB Type C port. This is what Intel is offering on the NUC7i5 models. It would be a good idea to have the USB type C just a transfer data port.

 

 

You can find a list of tested peripherals for the Intel® NUC https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000023164/mini-pcs/intel-nuc-kits.html here

 

 

Additionally, you can keep checking this post for recommendations provided by other peers.

 

Hope you can find something useful for your computer needs.

 

 

Regards,

 

Allan J.
