Hey. My DxDiag says "System Model: GL503VM" "BIOS: GL503VM.311" Also my exact model number is GL503VM-ED032T as mentioned in a previous reply, so I don't think my model has anything to do with the GL503VMF model? I've also tried the eSupport of the VMF after losing mine and had an error about the model not being the same.
On the same DxDiag window, it normally would have 2 display tabs, one for Nvidia and the other for the integrated Intel, while I only have NVidia. Also the right click on the desktop where I only have the control panel option for Nvidia. Device manager > Display adaptors also only shows the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. It's possible that no VMF model has an integrated intel gpu, but a few VMs similarly don't.
Also by reading your last paragraph, am I correct to understand that a laptop with both a GTX 1060 and an Intel integrated GPU (say an HD 630) and have a 2.0 HDMI output? If that existed then it wouldn't not make sense, after all it would be a manufacturing choice whether to pass the HDMI output signal from the Nvidia or the Intel GPU...What's kinda unfortunate is with all this information, you still can't really tell the version of the HDMI output until you go to extra lengths, or if your specific model number spec sheet mentions it which isn't the case for many retail pages.
In any case, thank you for looking into the matter and helping clear the fog about this matter. It's a reasonable argument to just recommend the use of the mini DP port for those who find the very rare adapters/cables
Does the monitor have Displayport?
Always use displayport instead of HDMI if you can, when it comes to computer monitors.
