Hi Mark,

Thanks for contacting us!

It sound like you are using Intel’s Thunderbolt 3 Skull Canyon NUC system (…), and have one display each connected to the HDMI, mini-DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt 3/USB-C outputs respectively (please let me know if I am mistaken).

With the current configuration you are the limit of what the internal graphics adapter (GPU) can support, a total of three displays, but you could potentially add one of our USB 3.0 video adapters based on DisplayLink technology to add a fourth display as it is not bound by the internal limitations.

For example, our UGA-4KHDMI adapter ( will allow you drive up to a 4K HDMI display at a 30Hz refresh rate. Please keep in mind you will need to load a DisplayLink driver to enable the unit to work ( and that our USB video adapters depend on the system’s CPU and GPU to work and each connected adapter requires resources from the host system.

If you do elect to move forward with your purchase and find that the unit does not meet your needs or expectations, we do offer a 30-day no-hassle return policy on all products sold by Plugable Technologies and fulfilled by Amazon.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
