Q: Can Yoga 900 drive external display 4k @ 60hz via ...

Hi, Can someone from Lenovo officially confirm or someone who has bought this laptop test this and confirm, can the new Yoga 900 output 4k resolution @ 60hz to an external monitor, such as Dell P2715Q? What I see in the specs, it has Intel HD 520, and the spec sheet says DisplayPort 1.2 via USB-C can drive4096x2304 @60Hz However, there's no confirmation anywhere of this, neither from Lenovo, nor from users. Most USB-C to DP cable makers haven't tested this yet. I'm seriously considering the new Yoga 900 as a replacement for my T410. Main use is business and photo editing, and looks like an awesome laptop. The ability to hook up 1 external monitor at 4k @60hz is critical for me, otherwise, it's a Dell XPS 13. Thanks in advance,Vele

I have been reading the fourms including several similar posts regarding the Yoga 910.  I just purchased a Yoga 720 (72015IKB-80X7) and have tried a couple Type C adapters without any luck and am curious if anyone else has had any success.  I am conntected to a LG 27UD69P & was able to get 4K @ 60Hz via the display port on my Asus n550JV before it died (hence my new Yoga). I have tried the following adpaters:Cable Matters Typc-C to HDMI adapter (201018-BLK) - I was able to get 4K (3840 x 2160), but only @ 30HzCable Matters Type-C to DisplayPort adapter (201016-BLK) - Just received a blank screen on my montitor (Windows did not see the 2nd display)BTW...I e-mailed Cable Matters support & their reply was "it might not work on a Yoga 720." which ws not very useful, nor helpful. Interested if anyone else has had any luck.  I have a Plugable Type-C to HDMI 2.0 adpater coming tomorrow.  Hopefully that will work.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums, but I've had my Yoga 900 for about a year now. Love it! I recently acquired a Dell 4k monitor and I want to use it as an external display for my 900. I have a USB-c to Displayport adapter. However, I'm a bit nieve on the CPU & GPU requirements for 4k. So, will the 900 do the job? Will it work via the USB-c out to Displayport?  Thanks in advance for your thoughts

Hello all. For the life of me I cannot get a good, strong Yoga Glass C930 (Intel UHD 620 video-adapter), with an equally strong, USB-C Dock Gen 2.Per their site, https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd029622#ThinkPad%20Thunderbolt%203%20Dock%20Gen%202  to output (with lid closed) to 2 x DisplayPort 2K monitors.  It will do either at 2K, or both at 1080p.  The laptop can do 4K on laptop screen AND 2K external - so I don't see why it can't do 2x 2K external. The only possibility I see is if this Yoga Glass C930 is actually DP 1.2 instead of DP 1.4.  Then the dock is limited to 2x 1080P - which seems dumb given that I'm using Thunderbolt connectivity.I wasted an hour with remote "Premium" support this morning as they wanted me to use the USB 3.0 dock because they found it under "Top accessories" and I already HAD that dock, it does not charge the laptop, which makes it nearly pointless.  I spoke with Lenovo support back in June about that exact issue and we settled on this dock as the best solution.  Unfortunately I've yet to find anyone at Lenovo that actually knows their equipment or willing to admit they don't have their products engineered properly. So, I've seen a few folks with success here with this laptop - and it appears to work with a previous gen dock (according to the matrix, it shouldn't be); so I'm hoping one of you enterprising folks can guide me on getting this to work.

Hi, The Dell UP3218K 8K monitor uses TWO Displayport 1.4 cables to deliver its 8K 60Hz, using a technique called MST and DisplayID. The technique is described in this VESA document https://www.vesa.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Display-Summit-USA-2016-AMD-VESA-SAH_Final_r1.pdf at page 10. All of the X1 Extreme gen1's GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q's and gen2's GTX 1650 MaxQ and P1 gen1's Quadro P2000 and gen2's Quadro T2000, support this feature, even see here https://www.nvidia.com/en-sg/geforce/products/10series/compare/ for 1050 they say "Maximum Digital Resolution*: [email protected]" and "* 2 - 7680x4320 at 60 Hz RGB 8-bit with dual DisplayPort connectors". ALL these four Thinkpads have *TWO* displayports, each via the Thunderbolt, and therefore can drive one of these 8K displays by connecting the display to the TWO Thunderbolt-displayports, right?  (Either use an USBC-Displayport converter on each port, OR: Driving the display via both Thunderbolt ports can even be done concurrently with using a Thunderbolt expansion chassi on each of the two Thunderbolt connectors, where the Thunderbolt chassi has a Displayport passthrough slot, e.g. like the Akitio Node Pro has, see on back there https://www.akitio.com/expansion/node-pro there's Thunderbolt in, Thunderbolt out (= daisy chain), and Displayport out. The Thunderbolt cable will have the bandwidth for half-of-8K-60Hz and do Thunderbolt PCIe data at the same t...

I'm using a USB-C to HDMI adapter (using the DisplayPort over USB standard, not an older DisplayLink type) to use an external display on the Yoga 730 and it has issues when running as 2 separate displays (everything works fine when mirroring or using only the external display). If you set the graphics settings to "extend these displays" the Windows 10 shell seems to wedge itself (can interact with already running apps, but cannot start new apps or use the taskbar/start menu) and the bottom of each display flickers (looks like a flickering ghost taskbar). I don't suspect a hardware issue with the adapter because it works perfectly in mirroring or single-display mode; instead I suspect a graphics driver bug. Others that use this adapter on other PCs have no problems. I'd love to try a newer version of the Intel 620 graphics driver but it won't install (it says it's incompatible with this system and to contact the computer manufacturer)... Lenovo's customized version of the driver is 4 months old. I have all the latest drivers installed via Lenovo Vantage, Intel's web interface (it only installed newer Wifi and Bluetooth drivers), and Windows Update. The laptop is running Windows 10 1803 17134.112 (2018 Creator's update).

When the cable is not plugged into the external display, it says 'Check Signal Cable' therefore I know the external display can recognize when it is plugged into the laptop. I have read other forums regarding cutting back the plastic on the micro hdmi cable for further extension of the male end into the micro hdmi port however continue to experience 'No Signal' messages.

I am using a usb-c to hdmi adapter to output to a TV but the black levels look washed out. I had no issues with the same TV and a previous laptop that had a dedicated hdmi port. In the intel graphics settings usually there is a "quantization range" setting to change color space between RGB Limited and RGB Full if the intel graphics is driving the hdmi port. However, in this case, there is no hdmi port but instead a usb-c to hdmi adapter, thus the quantization range setting is missing. I've had the same issue before on a previous laptop with usb-c. I've tried installing thel atest drivers, including the non-validated ones from the intel website, but none give me the quantization range setting.

I've got a Yoga 730-15IKB (no GTX inside; i7) that I'm trying to use to drive an LG 27UD58P-B monitor. It's a 4K, 60Hz-capable monitor, but I can only set it to 30Hz via the Intel Graphics Settings. I tried to chat with Lenovo about the issue, and had a very disconcerting go of it. The technician, when I told him about my problem and the 30 vs. 60Hz, asked if I was talking about the internet speed. I kid you not. He then said that, because the monitor is "third party" I have to go to a local support technician for it and refused to budge. Aside from that, I tried connecting the laptop to my 4K TV and it, too, would only let me go with 30Hz. My theories so far:1) The HDMI port is only 1.4 and not capable of 60Hz2) There's something funny in the laptop that's not letting me get to 60Hz3) There's something wrong with the HDMI cable? For reference, I've Googled this a bit and my LG monitor has the deep color setting enabled and still no luck. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

My Thinkpad Yoga 15 has a problem, which may or may not be related to the BIOS update recently performed. When booting, the bootup screen only appears on an external monitor via the HDMI output. When performing the hardware tests in the BIOS, tests are done on the HDMI-connected display, the internal display does not seem to be recognized. I verified this using both Linux and Windows. It does not seem to be a hardware failure; I have been able to get the display on the internal LCD a few times, by powering down the laptop, holding the power button for about 20 seconds, then powering back on while pressing F1. The laptop will then function for a while, but loses its display after coming out of sleep. Needless to say, this is unworkable. Does anyone have any tips on how this could be fixed in a more permanent fashion or any indication to cause? BIOS does not allow me to turn off NVIDIA, or its opposite, to enable it exclusively. I also tried different drivers, from both Lenovo as well as NVIDIA and Intel, but to no avail. Any pointers appreciated.

Hi, I'm using my Yoga 900 on the desktop for longer periods of time. When it awakes from sleep it does not always "remember" that it was last displaying on the external monitor. Sometimes I have no picture at all, sometimes I have the picture on the internal monitor. When I switch to external only with F10, it won't do that, so the external monitor (HP 24es) won't wake up. Up to now my only solution is to plug out and back in the Type C adapter (Apple 3x multi adapter). That's definitely not what I want to do several times a day. Thanks for any hint...!

Hi,I have a L380 Yoga 20M7-001BMH with ELAN trackpoint which exhibits the same behavior as described on another forum: https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=126939 The trackpad works correctly regardless of scenario, the trackpoint scrolling works correctly regardless of scenario,however, the trackpoint cursor has its axis swapped when I'm using a secondary screen in portrait orientation with "second display only" mode. More specifically, the X and Y axis are interchanged, acting as if the screen orientation was landscape. I'm assuming this behavior is due to the assumption that the primary display of the laptop will always be in landscape mode, and when connecting only an external display, it's percieved as the primary. I have Windows 10 with all updates installed, as well as all updates installed through Lenovo Vantage.The issue is present both with a display connected through a Dell D6000 dock as well as displays connected through HDMI.

What can I use to connect my external monitor and run 4K @ 60Hz from my HP Chromebook 13 G1 ? HP Chromebook 13 G1 has two USC-C Type 3.1 Gen 1 and can connect to a 4K external monitor, but how ? AFAIK USB-C Type 3.1 Gen 1 is limited to 5Gbps, where 4K @ 60Hz needs 6Gbps ?"DisplayPort Alternate Mode" might do it, but I?m not sure the Chromebook supports it ?Apparently DisplayLink can do it (support built into ChromeOS 51+) as they provide the internals for HP?s Elite USB-C Docking Station G2 that connects the Chromebook to one 4K monitor or two 2K monitors, presumably @ 60Hz ?StarTech seems to have found a way with their CDP2HDUCP ? Delock has their S_62730 that claims it can do it ?I need to be sure before I order ...  TIA and Cheers from Belgium,JohMut

I have an X1 Yoga (3rd Gen) and I cannot get it to output 4K @ 60Hz via USB-C to HDMI2. My setup: X1 Yoga (3rd Gen) with a USB-C 3.1 -> HDMI2.0 cabel going into a Dell Ultrasharp U2718Q. Everything says it should work... the cabel is rated to [email protected], the Ultrasharp definitely supports it, and I cannot find anything in the user manual that suggests that the X1 can't support it [email protected] out of the USB-C ports. Am I doing anything wrong?

Hi,
 
The way I read the X1YG1 base specs it supports two independent monitors.  Apologies, but I can't quite parse your post.  Does "apart from laptop screen" mean that you want 3 monitors total, or two and the laptops's display is off?
 
supports external digital monitor via HDMI or Mini DisplayPort;supports dual independent displays;
