How many displays can Intel Iris 540 support


I want to get a Dell XPS 13 with i7-6560 CPU and Intel Iris 540 GPU. Question is – can the GPU support 3 displays at 1920×1080? There are enough ports to support 3 displays (a Thunderbolt 3 port can support two 4K displays and one HDMI port), but can the GPU handle them?

Best Answer

The Intel specs are here and it says it also depends on what Dell does with the chip.

In short:
- Doesn't say what the maximum resolutions are when used together.
- The third external connection is a wireless display.

If you want 3 external screens probably no, don't know if there even are available WiDi screens. If you want 2 plus the laptop probably yes.
