XPS 13-9365, TB16 docking station, two monitors?

Jump to solution

Simple question: can the Dell TB16 docking station, when used with an XPS 13 7365, handle two external monitors? I have successfully hooked up one already via the mini DisplayPort jack on the TB 16, but I would very much like to have a second monitor, as well, connected to the docking station. Possible? PlugnPlay or difficult installation?

Thank you!

I'm assuming you meant the XPS 13 9365, since there's no XPS 13 7365, but yes the TB16 can support dual displays up to 4K 60 Hz on each display, and even some triple display configurations.  And yes it's as easy as plugging the second display into the output.  The one thing you cannot do with the TB16 is DisplayPort daisy-chaining, so both displays need to be connected directly to the dock rather than daisy-chained to each other.

Fyi, information about supported display configurations and a variety of other useful tidbits are available in the TB16's manual, which can be retrieved from support.dell.com by simply searching TB16. 🙂
