Lenovo Thunderbold Docking station with two monitors and longer cabel

2018-01-07, 19:03 PM

I would like to by a Lenovo Thunderbolt Docking station. Regarding this station I have two questions:
1. The cable which comes with the docking has only 50cm / 20 inch. I need a cable with 150cm / 60 inch, is there any recommondation, which cable I should buy. For a non technical person, this is really a jungle.

2. I read in the manual, if you have 2 x 4k monitors, the refresh rate will go down to 30HZ. Could somebody tell me, if I connect 2 x 2k Monitors (WQHD) what refresh rate this docking will provide.

 

Thank you very much for your help.

 

Gustav

Hi Gustav01, welcome to the forum.

 

I recommend you checking this matrix so you can be sure which resolution does the Thunderbolt 3 dock supports.

Hi.

 

I was checking the cable lenght recommendation, I'm not expert on this area so I was googling arround.

There is a good suggestion here (but it is good to always double check):

https://superuser.com/questions/451126/mini-displayport-cable-max-length

 

It generally says that you can use a 2 meter cable without much problem, but I can not know for sure, and I don't know about cable qualities to recommend.
