    HD 4600 3 monitors set up

    Ichisuke

      Hi there. I have to make a new computer build for office purpose, no gaming.

      I've found this Graphics Drivers — Configuration 3-Displays FAQ

      I'm going to use this motherboard Gigabyte GA-H81M-HD3 with an i5-4440 (HD 4600)

      So... will I achieve 3 monitors using the Display Port, DVI and VGA?

      I wanted to use Display Port HDMI and VGA but I'm not able to find a cheap monitor with both HDMI and Dsiplay Port...

          Hi,

          Thank you for contacting us. The display your were planning is correct (DisplayPort+HDMI+VGA).  However, the DVI option will not be possible because our processors  do not support dual link. So, I recommend you to select another board or try to get the monitor HDMI/DisplayPort.

           

          ***Another option came to my mind, it is not a recommendation, it is just something you can research  a little bit more, you might consider an DVI active adaptor.***

           

          Best regards,

          faugub

            Wait... on that FAQs I read

             

            "What three independent display configurations are supported?

            View information for the Intel® Iris™ Pro Graphics 5200, Intel® Iris™ Graphics 5100, and Intel® HD Graphics 5000/4600/4400/4200"

            And then

            "Three independent displays are supported with most combinations of HDMI*, DVI, VGA, DisplayPort* (DP), Embedded DP (eDP), and Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi)."

             

            So why is DVI listed in that FAQs if is not compatible? Also there is no sign on that FAQs that tells to use at least an adapter for DVI connection...

            I think that guide is not very clear...

              Were you able to get DVI active adapter? Did it work?

              The minimum requirement for three monitor configuration is Display Port.
