There are also two HDMI 2.0 inputs, one DisplayPort 1.4 input, and one USB Type-C port that supports DP alt mode, audio, device charging up to 60W, and data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s. Additional connectivity is achieved using two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (downstream) and one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B port (upstream). Audio can be output using the 3.5mm headphone jack.
