    Has anyone tested multiple monitors output from the core (and a supported card) say like 3x monitors @ 1080P WITH the laptop monitor as well?

    I know, weird question, but i need either 2x or 3x monitors in extended desktop mode + the laptop screen for VJ performances....

    thanks in advance

    There's no reason why this wouldn't work. It will definitely suit your needs. In fact, most gaming laptops can do what you're trying to do, even without a eGPU enclosure dock like the Core. I know because I have that exact setup running off a laptop right now, and not even 1080p, I'm on 2560 x 1440.

    As long as you have a good GPU you should be fine.

    Yeah, Ive got a gigabyte P35x, which on paper is great, but its crippled by Optimus, so I am trying to avoid that at all costs while having something that is easy to transport in cases when I don't need the horsepower, but when I perform I can just pack the core in with some other equipment. I totally want to stay away from 10lb 17" laptops, they are just too huge to drag everywhere.

    Yeah I understand. It's just that these days, we have some powerful display options like DisplayPort and Thunderbolt 3. Hell, I used to run 3 1080p monitors off my Microsoft Surface (though obviously I wasn't playing any games on it). HDMI always gives me trouble though when it comes to multi-monitor support so I try to stay away from it :sweat:

    Hope you enjoy the Core :)

    of course it works. i've tested my RBS, Core+GTX1080 with triple monitors(2 were Dell U2311H 1080p and 1 was TIENA SD4800 UHDTV) and all of them were working wihout problem.

    hi circuit board - thanks for the reply, im just trying to be sure before i drop a ton of cash.

    can you also clarify - were you running 3 external monitors + the laptop screen? Ill need the laptop screen plus the externals (at least 2, three would be even better)

    No. I didn't use the internal screen because the graphics card in the core cannot accelerate graphics performance with both of external monitors and internal screen at same time.
