This section describes how to connect monitors to the workstation.
Using workstation integrated graphics
Depending on CPU configuration, some HP Z210 CMT and SFF workstations support Intel® HD
Graphics (integrated graphics) with simultaneous output to two monitors. Refer to the workstation
Maintenance and Service Guide on the Web at http://www.hp.com/support/workstation_manuals/,
If a PCIe or PCI graphics card is installed, Intel HD Graphics are disabled.
The HP Z210 CMT workstation provides rear-panel connectors for DisplayPort and DVI-I. (See
CMT Workstation rear panel components on page
The HP Z210 SFF workstation provides rear-panel connectors for DisplayPort and VGA. (See

Planning for additional monitors
All graphics cards provided with HP Z Workstations support two simultaneous display monitors (see
Connecting the monitors on page
available. The process for adding monitors depends on your graphics card(s) and the type and number
of monitors you want to add.
Use this process to plan for adding more monitors:
Assess your monitor needs:
Determine how many monitors you require.
Determine the kind of graphics performance that you want.
Note the type of graphics connector used by each monitor. HP provides graphics cards with
DisplayPort (DP) and DVI interfaces, but you can use adapters and third-party cards to
interface to other graphics formats, including DVI-I, HDMI, or VGA.
to compare the cost of acquiring adapters versus the cost of getting a newer monitor that
doesn't need adapters.
Determine if you need additional graphics cards:
Consult the graphics card documentation to determine how many monitors you can connect
to the card.
card with either Dual Link DVI or Display Port output. To get native resolution with DVI,
however, you must use a DL-DVI cable, not standard DVI-I or DVI-D cables.
If necessary, plan to acquire a new graphics card to drive additional monitors.
