Is yoga 900 USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 compatible?

Q: Is yoga 900 USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 compatible?

Hi all.I can't find this information. I would like to use an external GPU connected to the USB Type-C of the yoga 900. I know that the razr and new dell xps 13 does support them.In fact, Dell says (from it's site): "Thunderbolt? 3 supporting: Power in/charging, PowerShare, Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps bi-directional), USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), VGA, HDMI, Ethernet and USB-A via Dell Adapter (sold separately)" but there is almost no information from lenovo's site. I've only used VGA and HDMI adaptars on this port, but i really want to use an external GPU. Any information would help! Regards,Julián

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There are very little documentation for a lenovo yoga 900s.I would like to know if I can connect two displays to my lenovo yoga 900s over usb type c. I am looking for a hub that will work on my device and will include at least one USB 2.0, 2x HDMI (one can be VGA) and an ethernet port. Can you recomend any?

A:Does lenovo yoga 900s (900s not 900) usb type c supports thunderbolt 3? Can I connect two displays?

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't answer your question directly  but looking at the base spec, the implication is USB-C but not Thunderbolt, single external display supported.

Hi,
I'm looking at purchasing an XPS 8910/8920, which has has a USB-C port.  From what I've read, it appears USB-C ports are compatible with thunderbolt 3 devices (both physical and protocol).
Will the USB-C port also be compatible with thunderbolt 1 or thunderbolt 2 devices, via an adapter (ie. http://www.macworld.com/article/3136177/macs/yet-another-apple-dongle-apple-thunderbolt-3-usb-c-to-thunderbolt-2-adapter-now-available.html)?
I'm asking as I have a thunderbolt (first generation) device currently connected to a (now defective) Mac and I'm looking at switching this to a PC.  I'd prefer going through the integrated USB-C port if compatible, rather than adding a Thunderbolt PCIe card, which get mixed reviews.
Thanks

A:XPS with USB-C port... compatible with Thunderbolt devices (including previous generations)?

From what I can tell the USB C is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 port so it should work.  I didn't find any documentation on it but a quick google search found multiple people using it and the adapter should take care of any cross compatibility issues.

Hello all,I bought a Yoga X1 2018 and during the shop they suggest the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Dock. Since I thought that having to disconnect only one cable when bringin the laptop from the desk to the meeting room would have been useful, I bought it.With my disappointment I setup everything and I did some tests on the laptop just to discover that the performance of the laptop when powered through the docking station are 1/3 with respect to when it's powered by the 65W power supply and 1/2 of when the laptop is on battery... (234pt vs 640pt vs 563pt | dock/65W/battery)Now since the docking station has a 135W power supply, I really can't think that this is an issue with the supply from the docking. Also since the laptop is even faster on battery I really don't understand how it could be related to the power supply... anyway I've connected both the 65W power supply and the docking and the performance are back to normal.Is there anyone who can suggest me what's going on or how to report this to Lenovo?

When I first time plug in the dock, everything works fine the thunderbolt software pops up and ask me the authorized the new dock. And I click always trust this device. Then the windows crushed with a blue screen and a QR code on it. After 920 restarted, and I tried the dock again, it was identified as USB 3.1 hub but no USB connection. And when I tried to open the thunderbolt software, it shows me the following warning.I tried to update the driver, but the installer said it was all ready. And then I downloaded HWINFO64 to check, I could not find the thunderbolt 3 controller under the PCI-Express X4 BUS. Is that means my thunderbolt 3 port is broken? What should I do with this? Btw, when I plug in the thunderbolt 3 dock, the powersupply is also connected, and the dock also provide the power, two power supply input at the same time, will that be a reason of the crash which also burn the thunderbolt 3 controller?

Does anyone have the Apple Thunderbolt Display working with the Yoga 920? It should work with a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter, but I can't get it to work for me. When I plug in the display it makes a little chirp and the Thunderbolt software asks me to authorize it. The device then shows up in the list of Thunderbolt devices but it is not connected. Authorizing the device again doesn't do anything. The display stays dark and any USB device plugged into it doesn't show up and doesn't even appear to be powered on. My guess is some magic has to happen to get the device to fully turn on, which seems like a driver problem but I can't find a Windows driver for it. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I'm using the thunderbolt port for a single connection to a Dell usb-c dock (power in, KVM out, speakers, network, etc.).  The 720 charges real slow and the battery status message (in Lenovo Settings app) states that the "AC adapter cannot provide enough power for normal operation of your computer".  The Dell usb-c docks are powered with a 180w power supply that provides 60w of power to the computer, which is more than the 45w power supply that comes with the 720.  I have tried 3 different Dell docks, including a Dell thunderbolt 3 dock with a 240w power supply. I have to believe this is an issue with the Thunderbolt 3 driver on the 720 or something BIOS related.  BTW, the 720 has Windows 10 pro loaded (updated from the home version loaded by default) and Bitlocker enabled.  Don't think these changes have anything to do with the issue. I purchased Lenovo's thinkpad usb-c dock (which states that it's universal) and hope it charges the 720.

The egpu still was not charging (no power delivery), and it only works one port 2 (port closer to touch pad) with charger connected to port 1. If I switch them, the laptop goes blue scree. I can remove the power after it is connected but then there is no power supply. It is kind of similar to the issue as MrKnowNothing https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/YOGA-920-Thunderbolt-3-Port-No-devices-fou.... I have tried different drivers but all of them do not work.

However this monitor won't stay connected to my laptop.  Whenever I plug the monitor in Windows 10 plays it's "new connection sound", my screen goes black and a couple seconds later my screen is displayed on this 38" beauty. However every 15-30 seconds afterwards the display will flash black for a few seconds as my laptop disconnects and then reconnects. It doesn't matter if my laptop is open or closed, the constant disconnects occur (although when my laptop is closed the frequency drops to every few minutes).  Either way, it renders this monitor so frustrating that it's uselses and am figuring out which product I need to return.  Any advice or suggestions are recommended So far I have used lenovo vantage to upgrade all firmware. My buddy also plugged his Dell laptop into the monitor and had no issues whatsoever. So I'm leaning torwards this being a Lenovo issue and not LG. Thanks,
