    Looking at one of these and had a few questions.

    I have a ThinkPad X1 Extreme where I disable the dGPU in Ubuntu because it really doesn't get used and causes more heat / fan noise. Due to how was it was designed, the HDMI and TB3 go through the dGPU and I lose the ability to use external monitors when it is disabled.

    I'm trying to find out if the HP ZBook Studio x360 G5 with a dGPU (P1000, P2000, etc.) has this same issue or if the HDMI and TB3 video go through the iGPU as well. That way HDMI and TB3 would still work if the dGPU is disabled.

    I've read conflicting information: one thing says you'd need to go with a model having absolutely no dGPU, just iGPU, to accomplish this; another thing says, yes, the HDMI and TB3 video go through both the iGPU and dGPU.

    Can anyone confirm?
