Hey guys, I know thunderbolt has been around for a minute but i'm having trouble figuring out this whole, USB 3.1c (thunderbolt) as a display output.

This is the exact laptop in question. It has a 960m and a USB 3.1 C (thunderbolt) port.

I'd like to use it to output to two 1080p 60hz monitors.
Easy enough for the first one, Just use the native HDMI.

But that second monitor... Thunderbolt 3.0 is the same physical plug as DP, is all i need a mini DP to HDMI? I also read something about it having to be DP enabled in the hardware, can't get a clear answer.

Anyone with a laptop using multiple monitors like this?
