    I recently bought a Samsung CRG9 ultrawide 49" 5k monitor (resolution: 5120 x 1440) for work.

    I am thinking of replacing my existing laptop with a Surface Pro 6. Will the Surface Pro 6 support an ultrawide 5k monitor?

    I know that the Surface Pro 6 does not have a USB-C port. Would it be possible to connect the Surface Pro 6 to an ultrawide 5k monitor by using a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter or Mini Displayport to DisplayPort 1.4 cable?

    The graphics card for the Surface Pro 6 (Intel UHD 620) can support a 5k monitor. My current laptop has the same graphics card and is able to support a 5k monitor, although the refresh rate is not ideal (but good enough for me as I don't use the setup for gaming).

    Does anyone have experience with this? Any tips would be appreciated.

    There are several videos on YouTube for this which suggests that, yes, it can support it.
