Hi, is someone able to give me an idea of whether the usb Thunderbolt port on my HP Omen laptop will be able to provide enough grunt to replace all ports other than graphics output? The laptop comes with a huge 230W charger brick. Is the technology there yet to have a two plug laptop set up, one for graphics output and one for all peripherals and power?
If not, when can I expect usb C power delivery to increase?
Cheers!
Leon

Not sure what you mean about replace all ports? What do you want to connect to that? USB C won't be able to power your laptop, the power charging off that is made for lower power systems, I think most are up to 60 watts from all the systems I worked on with USB C chargers, past that you need a standard power adapter. I think the USB C standard is higher, but I don't know of any USB C chargers that high.
