How can I tell if my Microsoft Surface tablet is compatible with this MST hub?
Although most Microsoft Surface tablets include Mini DisplayPort, the capabilities vary depending on the tablet model. For more information about MST hub compatibility, refer to the following table:
|Model||Mini DisplayPort||MST||Graphics card|
|Surface RT||No||No||NVIDIA Tegra 3|
|Surface Pro||Yes (DP 1.1)||No||Intel HD Graphics 4000|
|Surface 2||No||No||NVIDIA Tegra 4|
|Surface Pro 2||Yes (DP 1.2)||Yes||Intel HD Graphics 4400|
|Surface 3||Yes (DP 1.1)||No||Intel HD Graphics (Cherry Trail)|
|Surface Pro 3||Yes (DP 1.2)||Yes||
Intel HD Graphics 4200
|Surface Pro 4*||Yes (DP 1.2)||Yes||
Intel HD Graphics 515
|Surface Book||Yes (DP 1.2)||Yes||Intel HD Graphics 520|
|Surface Pro 2017||Yes (DP 1.2)||Yes||Intel HD Graphics 615 (m3)
Intel HD Graphics 620 (i5)
Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 (i7)
*The Surface Pro 4 does not work with an MST hub when the Surface Pro 4 is connected to the Surface Dock. If the Surface Pro 4 is directly connected, it will work with an MST hub.
In order to access the full functionality of the hub, you need to install the latest drivers provided by Microsoft Update.
Note: You cannot use an MST hub to increase the maximum number of displays that a video card supports. For example, if your video card only supports up to three displays, (as is the case with all of the Surface models listed above), your display limit will still be three displays even if you use an MST hub.
