    Title should read 3440

    I really need a mini display port to hdmi 2 cable (not dongle)

    My monitor has only one dp port and I need that for my desktop gpu for nvidia freesync compatiblity

    Unfortunately my surface Dock and work laptop need DP connections so I need two mini DP to hdmi

    This sends really hard to find. I'd rather avoid the dongles as that just means more cables.

    Any ideas?

    is there no USB port spare , you could install the displaylink software and use a suitable adapter

    Can you not buy min DP to HDMI? My understanding is DP can be converted to HDMI at the source? But going the other way is tricky.

    I can't seem to find a cable (plenty of adapters) that are 4k 60hz

    Ah okay you might need an active adapter then. But they really aren't that bulky to connect inline.
