Dell Venue 8 Pro - Graphics Adapter Support


I recently saw your video connecting the Dell Venue 8 Pro to your USB docking station. Instead of using the docking station, can you use one of your USB (2.0/3.0) Graphics Adapters with the Dell Venue 8 Pro to connect to a monitor (DVI)?

Along that line, if yes, can I use either the 2.0 or 3.0 adapter?



I’d be happy to answer your question about the Dell Venue 8 Pro and our USB display products.

Since the Dell Venue 8 Pro USB port is only USB 2.0, you can use any of our USB 2.0/3.0 display adapters. As a note, any of our USB 3.0 products will only operate at USB 2.0 speeds.

Thanks Stephen!

I wasn’t sure if a “self powered” adapter was required given that it was a tablet and the low power from the USB.

Much appreciated.
