I just got a new HP Envy with Windows 11. I see there is a USB-C dongle that can supply three monitors at 2560x1440 each.

How can I find out if the video card in my laptop will be able to drive 3 monitors at that resolution?

I just ran CPU-Z and found the following info:
- Intel Core I5 1135G7 (Tiger Lake-U)
- Intel Iris Xe Graphics

Now the question is, can I find a USB-C hub that breaks out into 3 x DisplayPort jacks...

All good partner. I did a similar thing the other day. There are some sharp people on these boards so it is only natural to ask.

I'm impressed that a stinking laptop with no dGPU can evidently drive 3 high res displays out of a tiny USB hole.

Let us know if how this works for you, I might want to drive 2x displays.
