U2415, Dual, XPS 13-9370 USB Type-C, connection?

Jump to solution


What do I need to connect XPS 13-9370 Laptop (USB Type-C) to dual UltraSharp 24 Monitors – U2415?

The laptop comes with:

  • 1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB Type-C) port with Power Delivery/DisplayPort
  • 2 Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port with Power Delivery

Each monitor comes with:

  • 2 HDMI(MHL) connector
  • 1 Mini DisplayPort
  • 1 DisplayPort (version 1.2)

I don't know which ports on the monitors would be best to utilize, and what hardware adapter I would need in between. Thanks.

The U2415 ports are as follows =
Power, HDMI in, HDMI in, DP in, mDP in, DP out, Audio out, USB upstream, four USB downstream

* The power AC adapter must be plugged into the XPS 13-9370
* The USB Type-C out port closest to the security cable slot is the Primary

XPS 13-9370 USB Type-C out port --> USB Type-C to DP cable --> #1 U2415 DP in port (DP 1.2 Enabled) (See page 28)

#1 U2415 DP out port --> U2415 DP to mDP cable --> #2 U2415 mDP in port (DP 1.2 Disabled)
