Hello all,

 

I've recently received a Surface Book 2 15" with 1060 performance base as my work laptop replacement.

 

 

 

I'm now looking to see what I can do to replace 2 monitors with a single ultrawide UHD monitor so less desk space being used with what SB2 can actually drive/support.

 

Anyone know what's the magic resolutions (32:9, 21:9. 16:9, with at least 1440p) that can work at 60hz?

Dont have any input on the SB but I had an LG ultra wide 21:9 at my previous job. Worked great with my XPS 13. Just bear in mind that as its ultra wide your existing monitor is likley to be much taller (since its the diagonal which is measured).

 

Does the SB use a dock? Only issue I had was that the (USB 3) dock for the XPS wouldn't drive the ultra wide using some of the outputs - just a matter of switching the output but keep this in mind if you are running additional monitors (I used the LG plus another 16:9 momnitor in portrait mode).

All Surface devices except the Surface Studio uses Surface Dock.

 

 

 

I am wondering if 21:9 at 1440p can be driven whilst together with built-in display. And next is a UW monitor with another 16:10 or 16:9 in portrait mode together with built-in display.

 

Primary usage for coding.
