Light Posted September 23, 2022 Share Posted September 23, 2022 I've always connected my precision laptop to U3014 monitor with mini-dp to DisplayPort cable. The 7770 doesn't have a mini-displayport connection, but has both an HDMI port and USB-C ports. I'm curious -- is the HDMI connection usable / advisable. A long, long, long time ago I thought I remember reading about the hdmi running off the intel gpu not the nvidia, or something like that, but that was long ago... Also it looks like the U3014 is limited in resolution to 1080p with a direct hdmi connection -- would an hdmi to dvi-d cable work in this situation to drive the U3014 from the nvidia gpu at 2560 x 1600? Or is USB-C to DP cable the (only) way to go? Since the HDMI port is there on the 7770, I'm just curious if it's usable in my case and if it is worth anything to free up an additional USB-C port, and if an HDMI->DVI adapter cable would work better/worse/the same as the USB-C->DP adapter cable.
