You can get hubs to do this, or use displays which support daisy chaining meaning they have a DisplayPort input and output —the Dell U2414H, for instance. Most with only one connector will not support this. If your graphics card and monitor s support it, then it is just as good an option. Though other D-sub connectors like the serial port uses digital signals, the provisions in the standard only allows analog signals.

Those who work with professional-quality monitors might have a very particular reason for preferring DisplayPort: it supports a unique feature called a daisy chaining. Port protection technology The dongle style adapter reduces strain on the video port. How do I connect the two, in any way? For practical purposes, this allows a maximum screen resolution at 60 Hz, for widescreen 16:10 ratio of 2,098 × 1,311 or, for 4:3 ratio, of 1,915 × 1,436 pixels. DisplayPort can also carry audio signals on a single cable, and the latest release supports up to 8K resolution at 60 hertz with high dynamic range. The smaller plug allows computer manufacturers more flexibility, but it also means that end users need either a dedicated mini-to-standard cable or an adapter. This would mean that you have to make sure that the conversion is in the right direction for the equipment. However I can't afford a new monitor yet that I would like and so I need to use this until then.
