I would assume that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 would connect to my UWQHD monitor over HDMI, however I can't get it to work that way. When I plug the monitor into the Core V2/1080, I get no signal. When I plug the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on my Blade Stealth laptop, I get a signal to my monitor... any ideas? I don't have a DisplayPort cable to try on the monitor/Core V2. I've tried all three HDMI ports on my monitor as well - they all work with the Stealth but not with the 1080/Core V2. I'm assuming I'd get better video throughput direct from the Core V2 as opposed to routing through the TB3 port and then HDMI to the monitor.
