Dual Monitor Setup on New 2019 Helios 300

MunberriMunberri Member Posts: 1 New User
Hey there everybody. I ordered a new Helios 300 (Model: PH315-52-78VL : i7-9750H & GTX 1660Ti).
I was thinking about using it as a desktop replacement sometimes. On my desktop, I am using two monitors (Full HD or Ultrawide, nothing special).
I wanted to know if there was a way to connect some sort of USB C Hub or something similar that has two monitor outputs to the computer, instead of connecting both HDMI and Mini DisplayPort every time I plug the laptop in.
I saw some USB C Hubs on AliExpress/eBay/Amazon that have Dual Monitor support (like 2x HDMI or 1x HDMI & 1x VGA), but I'm not sure if the laptop can output video through the USB-C since it's not thunderbolt.

Thank you!

    Good Morning Munberri !

    Only Type-C 3.1 Gen2 USB connections with Thunderbolt support can stream video.

    From reviews, some appear to be Gen 2 while others Gen 1 (in this case it would not be possible).

    I believe it can make it easy to just get a Type C> HDMi USB cable and perform a test.
