I want to know if I use a docking station to extend 2 monitors from the ThunderBolt type-C port, can I also get the 3rd video output from the HDMI port? What maximum resolution and refresh rate can I get from them?

you asked:

HDMI port? What maximum resolution and refresh rate can I get from them?

 

which monitors do you have? (model number)

 

and google is your friend here

 

next which docking station model do you have? keep in mind that a docking station is not the same as a port replicator

 

your question:

if I use a docking station to extend 2 monitors from the ThunderBolt type-C port, can I also get the 3rd video output from the HDMI port

 

again google is your friend "ThunderBolt type-C port to hdmi"

USB C to Dual HDMI 4K, CableCreation USB Type C (Compatible Thunderbolt 3) to 2 HDMI Adapter, Compat...

 

My concern is:

I also have one BenQ PD2500Q (2K resolution) monitor, and I want to connect it with the HDMI Port on the ZBook as well, does the bandwidth of the ZBook enough to support 3 monitors? Google has barren information about ZBook.
