To look up if your device has a USB-C port that is capable of this follow these steps:

  1. Google your device model name and datasheet. You will most likely find a PDF from your manufacturer’s website. Download and open it.
  2. Scroll down to the section listed as ports or I/O. (if you can’t find it check if there is information about the ports by the picture of the the laptop) Different manufacturers use different terminology.
  3. Find your USB-C ports and check if it says any of the following: “(Video)”, “Alt DP”, “DisplayPort”, “TB 3”, “TB4”, “Thunderbolt 3”, “Thunderbolt 4”. See below for examples. The words to look for are underlined in the examples.
