Detailed description:HI - i have a 534FTC which would appear to not support video out on usb-c, but it does support an ASUS MB16ACE mobile monitor in HD and powers it too?

is this something special about the MB16 or should the usb-c output give video for other monitors too.

I've had numerous ASUS kit for years now and this just seems very un-them.

As the laptop came with the mobiel monitor i never even thgouht to ask whether it would work with other montiors too....

I know its got HDMI but I'd like to run two 27 QHD monitors for CAD just like my previous (ancient) HP Zbook used to....


  • Hi,

    The MB16 should be working with UX534FTC.

    Is there any issue with it?

    Thank you.

  • thanks for replying - the MB16ACE works perfectly - i can't get any other monitors to recognise the usb-c alt output when connected via an adaptor (usb-c to DP) or via a usb-c to DP cable.

    ASUS have confirmed that my UX534FTC has Alt mode on usb-c even though, neither the case graphic nor the generic instructinos show a "D" on the usb-c slot.


  • Hi,

    Your laptop has screenpad, right? if so, the USB C does not support display export.

    However, the MB16 is working as an external graphic card that allows it to be used.

    Thank you.

  • thanks - that's the opposite of what 'support' have told me.

    and you are the only person that knows!

    why can't they say that on the tech spec so 'we' know before we buy (not everyone knows the diference between usb-c and usb-c).

  • and how do i change my tag / user name !!!

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the confusion.

    There are different version of this model.

    If you want to change user name, you may change it in "ASUS account"

    it will sync with it.

    Thank you.

    On my UX534FTC, I was able to get video out on the USB-A port on the left side via a USB-A to USB-C cable. With a 2nd external connected to the regular HDMI out.

  • I have a UX534FTC-AS77 ZenBook 15 and I'm astonished that I can't output 4k @ 60Hz to an external display!

    @pcarwinski were you able to get 4k @ 60Hz on any of the ports?

    @Blake_ASUS any way to output 4k @ 60Hz to an external display or is the laptop port-limited to 4k @ 30Hz?

    Hello @smashkanthegreat ,

    The maximum output of this mode is 4096 x 2160 @ 24 Hz

    Thank you.
