    Work gave me a Firefly 14 G7 and a Targus USB-C dock. According to Intel, the 10610U supports 3 monitors. However, in addition to the laptop's display, I have two monitors connected to the USB-C dock and a portable USB-C monitor attached. It drives all four displays no problem.

    I'd like to buy another USB-C dock and connect an additional two monitors. If I did this, I wouldn't use the external monitor and would close the laptop lid. I'm wondering if this notebook is capable of driving 4 USB-C monitors via two Logitech docks. I know it can drive four displays overall, but I'm not sure about this exact configuration.

    Just in case anyone else has this question, I received the monitors and dock this week. Using two of the linked docks, I am able to drive four external monitors and the laptop's display, for a total of five screens.

    Appreciate the post Nick. I don't have a dock but also only have 2 external monitors, any chance that you know whether I am able to use the 2 USB-C ports on the Firefly G7 and connect DisplayPort cables to each individual monitor? Or additionally, use one of the USB-C ports and run a DisplayPort cable to one monitor that is daisy-chained to the other monitor?

    I can't test out the daisy-chain option but I was able to use a monitor connected via USB-C and a monitor connected over a USB-C to HDMI adapter.

    I have:

    2x LG 25" UltraWide FHD IPS LED Monitor, 25UM58-P
    2x HP E24 G4 E-Series - LED Monitor - 23.8"
