Configuring three simultaneous displays is supported on Graphics for 3rd Generation Intel® Processors and newer. If you are unsure on which graphics controller your system has, you can identify your Intel® Graphics Controller.

Note Thunderbolt uses the USB-C connector to transmit display data.  Not all USB-C systems are compatible with Thunderbolt. To determine if Thunderbolt is supported, look for the Thunderbolt symbol or contact your equipment manufacturer.

If you are using a mobile processor, Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) supports 1920x1200 at 60 Hz and two external displays using 2560x1600 at 60 Hz.

Note

Intel® graphics support a wide range of resolutions. However, your system may support a lower maximum amount depending on many factors. These factors include:

  • The chipset or processor in your system
  • Which DisplayPort you are using
  • How your computer manufacturer has configured your computer
  • Your display or monitor capabilities
  • If your display or monitor is plug and play
  • If your display or monitor is in single mode, clone, or extended desktop mode

Check with your computer and display manufacturers to find out the maximum resolution supported by your computer and display.

If you are using multiple displays in clone or duplicate mode, you can only select a resolution supported by all displays.
