    Hello!

    My first time around this forum :)

    I have an Asus TUF A15, and in my job it's highly recommended to use two displays. I want to use two external monitors, since some programs I use do not support high DPI displays and are blurry on my laptop's screen so I rely entirely on 1080p external monitors.

    My laptop has one HDMI port and one USB-C with display support. My problem is that the display I connect in the HDMI port goes through my onboard graphics, but the display I connect in the USB port goes through my dedicated RTX 2060 card.

    This unfortunately causes some minor differences in the colors, vibrance, contrast, etc and no matter how much tweak them in the Nvidia Control Panel and display settings I just can't get them 100% right and my OCD is killing me.

    Not to mention there will probably be some difference from the cable as well... :D

    Do you guys know if there is some way to maybe redirect both displays on the same GPU, or some other way of calibrating this situation?

    EDIT: Also I'm aware of HDMI splitters, but since I don't have one I wanted to try first with what I have available.

    EDIT 2: Forgot to mention I'm running Windows 10. Both monitors are Dell P2419H

    Thanks for reading!
