Hello,
I just purchased the Asus Tuf A15 Gaming laptop with AMD ryzen 7 4800H and RTX 2060 GPU.

It has:
-HDMI 2.0B
-USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ with G-SYNC® enabled DisplayPort™ 1.4
-AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 integrated GPU

I want to to connect to an external monitor with atleast 144hz or 240hz with 1440p or 1080p.

Question 1: Which of the two ports is routed to the discrete Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU?

Question 2: If both are, which one is better?

Question 3: With a display port adapter with the intent to game, can both ports support G-SYNC for a monitor with Free-sync/G-SYNC capabilities.
Thank you so much for your time.😁

Connect displays to the ports and see what video card shows up on it as the one that is being used. You probably will need to use it in a game.

Since the Type C ports is listed as "G-Sync enabled" and G-Sync is an nVidia technology, that one seems like it runs off the nVidia card.

Same thing for what tech the ports support. If you plug in a Free sync monitor into them it will tell you if it detected a display with that or not.

Thanks for replying I guess I'll just have to wait for it to get delivered to my home. I'll reply back for anyone with a similar question once I test it out before they buy it. I'm also curious now though if I can run VR from that USB type C port. I'll look up some vids.
