    So a few questions for you experts I'm hoping you all can help me clear up some confusion.
    I just bought my -->
    Razer Blade Stealth 12.5" 4K Touchscreen Ultrabook (7th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD)

    It was delivered today but I am out of the state for work and won't be able to verify some things myself.
    I do mechanical engineering and design for a living and use my computer for that mostly, and some video editing etc. No games or anything like that.
    I'm swapping over from having an MSI GhostPro 4k GS60 which I run 2 monitors off of (LG 25UM58-P 25-Inch 21:9 UltraWide IPS)
    through the mini display and HDMI port on the MSI.

    #1 - Now from what I can gather about these RBS they can only run one monitor unless you daisy chain them via the; USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 / Thunderbolt 3 / USB Type-C / TB3 / port which is also the charging connection for the computer. So in essence one would need to find a monitor that is compatible and can provide at least 45W 2.25A 20V of power delivery. Is there even such a monitor in existence?


    #2 - Lets say I decide to stick with the LG monitors that I currently have. Is there a good USB Type C / TB3 docking station out that can run dual monitors up to 4k along with various other ports for functionality?

    #3 - What various accessories and peripherals has everyone that's had these tried and had successes and failures with? Any info would be much appreciated, thank you.


    (I know the CORE is an option, just not what I am wanting at this point)

    1) You mean whether USB-C (displayport) monitors exist? Google for it. Otherwise use much more common USB-C splitter into VGA/HDMI or whatever-you-want. There are also docks with multiple display options out there; they are easy to find. Plenty of them support USB-C power delivery. Thunderbolt has nothing to do here.

    2) See previous

    3) Search forum.

    Obviously you either did not read my question, or you do not know the specs and abilities of the RBS. Display and dock options that allow people to make full use of the Thunderbolt 3 abilities are not in abundance. In addition to that, the few that were available have been recalled or discontinued due to various issues pertaining to design and protocol issues.

    Whatever is obvious for you. I was presenting yesterday using RBS + VGA beamer + Apple USB-C - VGA adapter. I was also using RBS HDMI port several times with and without HDMI-VGA adapters.
    Up to you. I just said that Thunderbolt 3 has nothing to do with the Displayport capabilities of USB-C. Here is an example (relatively good reviews, btw).

    Thunderbolt 3 has everything to do with the questions I asked in the thread that I started. So again put some effort into reading comprehension or just don't reply. #1 the item you link to is not TB3 nor capable of running dual 4k monitors. It can barely run one 4k monitor since you have to set it at 30Hz.

    This is why I posed the question about TB3 compliant devices. Dual 4k monitors @ 60Hz while daisy chaining data storage and other devices all WHILE charging / powering the computer.

    Doing what you suggest is like buying a Lamborghini then ripping the engine out and replacing it with a motor from a Prius. Why on earth would I want to buy multiple cables and adapters to Frankenstein a system together that would run at substantially less performance?

    Oh man I will just choose the second option and GTFO.

    While you are being rather rude to those trying to help you, I'll throw in some advice. Per testing I've done on the Razer Blade (https://insider.razerzone.com/index...lade-2016-driving-2x-external-monitors.19747/), dual monitors are not supported well. With the additional limitations of the Stealth, I can't imagine the situation will be too much better. If you want a "stutter-free" experience, you will likely need to purchase a Core, but that seems to have it's own set of issues.

  8. Just get a thunderbolt 3 dock... It most likely will be able to supply 45W of power (bc most of them are made for the new Macbook Pros) and should have multiple outputs. Don't get a Dell one tho bc they are literal trash.
