I have a ROG Zephyrus G GA502DU and was wondering if I can somehow minimize the number of cables connected to it. Currently, I have the charger, ethernet cable, HDMI cable connected to an external monitor and other peripherals connected directly to the device.
Since the laptop has a USB 3.1 gen 2 type-c with DisplayPort 1.4, I wanted to make use of this by connecting my monitor using a standard type-c to type-c cable.
As a result, my questions are:
1) Would this even work?
2) Would it then be possible to connect a USB hub to the monitor which my peripherals and ethernet cable are linked to?
If this is feasible, the number of cables attached to my device would be reduced to 2 (the type-c cable and the power cable) which is why I am considering this option.
The monitor in question is the LG UltraWide 34UC99-W.
