Z590 D and second monitor output
« on: August 19, 2023, 06:58:34 am »
Is it possible to connect a second monitor to the motherboard via internal thunderbolt connector without a dedicated expansion card? If yes - how?

Greetings,
No.  The board has a single display port.  Only one display is supported.

And what's about thunderbolt connector?

Greetings,
My apologies, I wasn't clear on your question.  The internal header allows you to connect a Thunderbolt card.

Gigabyte makes 5 different models.

The one for your board is the MapleRidge.  It has to be installed to the x4 slot.  You can read about it here:

However, you cannot connect a display to the internal header, you must install a card.
