Daisy chaining HP Z27 UHD Displays

HP Recommended
HP Z27 27-inch 4K UHD Display - Product number: 2TB68A8
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I've just ordered 2 of these displays (HP Z27 27" UHD) with the intention of setting them up in a displayport daisy chain configuration. However, I cannot seem to confirm if they support daisy chaining. I know they are Displayport 1.2 displays...  and they have both standard and mini displayport options on them ...  but what I cannot confirm is if one of these DP ports is able to act as the DP output to the next display in the chain?


I did find the following HP article, and it mentions Z-Series displays, but it also specifically call out the requirment for Displayport in and Displayport out ports...  so I'm still not 100% clear.


These have not been shipped yet, so if I cannot confirm 100% these will be chainable, then I will need to cancel the order and look for alternative displays.

From the link, two things you need to check


  1.  In addition, your GPU must support DisplayPort 1.2 MST. MST stands for “multi-stream transport,” and it’s the software that enables daisy-chaining between DisplayPort ports. If your GPU doesn’t currently support MST, you should be able to download an MST driver online. The driver will then enable daisy-chaining on your GPU.
  2. If you’re going to daisy-chain monitors via DisplayPort, you’ll need monitors that are equipped with both a DisplayPort In and DisplayPort Out port.

Looking at the specs of the Z27 monitors


They ONLY have  Display Input, no Display Output. You need one monitor with display out to daisy chain to the next monitor.


Hope this makes senses.
