Can you connect displays to each other?
It is possible to chain together monitors with different display resolutions.The last monitor in the chain could even be an older DisplayPort 1.1 monitor (which only has a DisplayPort input), so long as the other monitors all have DP 1.2 inputs and outputs.
Nevertheless, what multiple displays do?
Why Use Multiple Monitors? Multiple monitors give you more screen real estate. When you hook multiple monitors up to a computer, you can move your mouse back and forth between them, dragging programs between monitors as if you had an extra-large desktop.
And, what is difference between DisplayPort and HDMI?
DisplayPort cables can achieve a higher bandwidth than HDMI cables. If there's a higher bandwidth, the cable transmits more signals at the same time. This mainly has an advantage if you want to connect multiple monitors to your computer.

Still, what is MST for monitors?
MST is a technology that allows multiple external monitors (with different graphic contents) to be connected via a single USB-C connector. The maximum number of external monitors that can be connected varies according to the GPU (graphical chip), but the most widely-used Intel integrated GPU chip can handle 3 monitors.
Similarly, can you run 2 monitors off 1 DisplayPort?
The DisplayPort output connects to the next downstream display. This cabling arrangement, with one DisplayPort cable between each set of monitors, provides a less cluttered system configuration.For example, one 2560 x 1600 monitor could be used with two 1920 x 1080 monitors.
However, why do you need two monitors?
The benefits of dual monitors

Beside this, what is DP Alt Mode?
DisplayPort Alt Mode (DP Alt Mode) allows a USB-C equipped computer to connect directly to a display or monitor.You can still use a USB-C equipped laptop with monitors that have more traditional video ports, such as VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort but you will need to get a USB-C video adapter.
Then, can I use both HDMI and DisplayPort at the same time?
Yes, HDMI and DisplayPort can be used at the same time if the framebuffers for both display interfaces are different.
