Fedora 29 dual monitor setup on laptop

I recently acquired a new laptop (ASUS Zenbook Pro UX550) with an Nvidia Geforce 1050 gtx card together with an integrated Intel. The output of lspci is the following.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 630 (Mobile) [8086:3e9b] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) 01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile] [10de:1c8c] (rev a1)

I had problem with the graphical installer: solved by adding "nouveau.modeset=0" kernel parameters. After installation rebooted and same problem, resolved with same parameter. But the worst thing is the HDMI port is not working.

Previous generation of ASUS Zenbook Pro (UX501) worked flawlessly: don't know is caused by the new GTX (still not supported by nouveau) or if ASUS connected the HDMI output to the NVIDIA GPU.

Is there a way to see where the HDMI is attached? With the command "xrandr -q" I see only this:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192 XWAYLAND0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 340mm x 190mm 1920x1080 59.96*+

I don't have particular needs, so I can go both with the Intel Integrated GPU or the NVIDIA In case I need to go with NVIDIA, I can install the proprietary video driver

Thanks
