My laptop is Asus Vivobook S150. It has a USB 3.1 type C port and a HDMI port. I want to have a dual monitor setup with it. I assume that I should connect one of the monitors to the HDMI port.

Which kind of adapter should I choose for connecting the other monitor to type C port? (HDMI or DVI or VGA)

Would the monitor connected directly to HDMI port give better picture quality compared to the one connect to type C via an adapter?

Will the monitor connected to the type C port using adapter be able to use the graphics card or just the CPU?

  • you ask multiple, seemingly unrelated question and don't share so much of your desired usage. Why not just try and use it? – Máté Juhász Sep 10 '18 at 12:06

DVI is same as HDMI but without the audio, so no good.

VGA is limited in resolution and frame-rate, so no good for high-end monitors.

Connecting to the port of your video card is much preferable to using a USB adapter with a built-in mini display adapter such as these.

  • Monitor doesn't have typeC port. I do not need the audio on the monitor. So I think USB C to HDMI or DVI both would give same quality (and lower than the native HDMI to which the first monitor will be connected to). Am I right? Thank you :) – aste123 Sep 10 '18 at 15:11
  • The question is, in fact, interesting and still actual to many readers. Can you, please, post your final experiences, if you still remeber them, – meolic Sep 5 '20 at 20:21
