Multiple Monitor with Surface Pro mini displayport

I have a computer running Windows 8 Pro x64 and it connects to two monitors via VGA and DVI. Everything works fine. I will buy a Surface Pro and want to use it as laptop. How can I use it with both external monitors (one is 31″ and the other 29″). Should I need to get additional hardware?

Surface Pro includes standard Mini DisplayPort v1.2 and support external Display with up to 2560×1600 resolution. With DisplayPort, you can run multiple monitors from a single device.

The VESA DisplayPort 1.2 hubs for multi-stream transport (MST) will be available by 2013. With the Adapter, you are able to get daisy-chaining of up to six full HD (1080p) monitors from two DisplayPort outputs. So it would be easy to connect the Surface pro to external TVs and Monitors.

  1. Looks like I’ve found a product that might work well.

    Im currently using a Alienware M11xr2 and looking to replace it with the surface pro, one of the things holding me back has been an effective docking solution. This plus a USB3 hub, might do nicely.

  2. I regret buying a Surface Pro 3. MiniDP port isn’t working anymore. Now using the same cable and monitor connected to a Dell Notebook the Montor works fine. Seems a problem with Surface. Total waste of money! Not recommending it. Buy newer notebooks that offer support for DP1.2 instead.
