Chris.P I just tried this out of curosity with an active mDP adapter. You are on to something. I broke my adaptor apart and found a Parade chipset inside. It has worked on 3 other laptops but flickers bad on the Skull Canyon.
I hope intel looks into this.
Using a non active doesnt let me get 2160 though; only 1080....
OEFVet Well this is interesting, and good to know. The 2nd monitor i'm using via mDP to DVI (non-active) only has a max res of 1080.. I guess now i know for in the future if i upgrade that monitor or add a 2nd UHD, i will need a different set up, unless intel fixes the problem.

Thank you very much for the details posted previously, that information is very helpful for us and for all the peers viewing this thread.
In regard to your inquiry, we recommend to use an active adapter because the chip inside of it does the proper conversion without losing any signal strength, but, depending on the adapter, there could be compatibility problems or it might not work properly.
On the following link you will see a list of tested peripherals for the Intel® NUC6i7KYK NUC, in there you will see some adapters that should work properly:
Just to let you know, the devices showing on that link are the ones that were tested by Intel, but there are many different devices that are not on that list and they work fine with the NUC too.
Additionally, on the link below you will find the latest version of the graphics driver for your NUC, which is 4501, in case you want to try it:
Any questions, please let me know.
