A while back I bought an Dell XPS 15 (9550) laptop with Thunderbolt and DisplayPort over USB-C. This whole USB-C with different supported protocols makes the search for the right converters a mess!
Since I use this laptop as a portable workstation I want my setup to require as few cables connected as possible. So daisy-chaining (MST, Multi-Stream Transport) my 2 DisplayPort monitors (Dell U2515H) would be great.
After a long google search, I came up with a couple of possibilities:
- Google USB-C to DisplayPort cable
Originally made for the Pixel chromebooks. Specs don't say which version of displayport is supported and whether daisy-chaining is supported.
- Dell USB-C adapter
No DisplayPort, but has Gbit Ethernet which is nice.
- Dell USB-C dock
- 3th party cables
You never know what you get however.
Finally I took the gamble and chose the Google USB-C to DisplayPort cable. When the monitors are set in DP1.2 mode (you have to do this manually in the display menu) the daisy-chaining of multiple monitors works great!
You can bunch connectors and gapers in here also in case you are
playing really stable limited play.
