Daisy chaining is the act of connecting many monitors using only one displayPort cable adapter on one DisplayPort 1.2 Output and then one short DispalyPort to DisplayPort cable between each DisplayPort 1.2 monitors. On most DisplayPort 1.2 video card, CPU integrated graphics or laptop port you may connect up to 4 monitors running at resolution of 1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200

Maximum monitors that you can daisy-chain to a DisplayPort 1.2 MST (broken down by monitor resolution):

What you'll need to daisy-chain yours monitors:

               1- DISPLAYPORT CABLES or Displayport to 2 Displayport

A displayport cable , the one that reach from the computer to the first monitor should be 6 or 10 feet long and all the ones that connect from one monitor to the other should be shorter (3 feet) enough , otherwise you'll have too much cable hanging around.

Never use cheap non certified cables or adapters with DisplayPort video cards, motherboards, laptops or monitors. They are known to have tons of issues: ONLY buy certified cables from known manufacturers. MSLFORCE  can provide the cable and adapter with necessary Certified cable and adapter


You'll need a DisplayPort 1.2 output on a Desktop video card or a laptop. It can be a Mini DisplayPort or a standard DisplayPort . Your output MUST be DisplayPort 1.2. If the video card, desktop or laptop is brand new (2014+), it should be 1.2. Check your owner's manuals for more information.

Examples of DisplayPort 1.2 video cards: 

            PNY Quadro K620 Graphic Card (4 monitors maximum)

            Sapphire Radeon R9 280X (3 monitors maximum)

Here are some examples of setups:

DisplayPort On A Desktop Motherboard:

Note: on-CPU graphics can be artificially limited to 2 or 3 monitors instead of 4, read your manual for more information.

DisplayPort On A Desktop Computer Case:

Note: If you have more than one video card, always connect the DisplayPort cable at the first one at the top of the case, which is also the one nearest to the CPU.


Connect a 10 feet (3 meters) or less DisplayPort cable (ideally 6 feet / 1.8 meters) from the video card or laptop to the first DisplayPort 1.2 monitor in the "DisplayPort IN" port ;

Now use a SHORTER 3 feet DisplayPort cable and connect it in the DisplayPort OUT of the first monitor and in the DisplayPort IN of the second monitor. If you have 3 or 4 monitors in total, repeat the process until done.
