ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock Audio Lag w/ Latest Driver

2018-11-16, 18:12 PM

I recently got a ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock to go with a T480 laptop. With the driver version that was available at the time, there was a lot of audio pop and crackle from the dock. After installing the latest driver (V10013), that issue is gone but now there's notable lag on the audio output from the dock. If I'm playing a YouTube video, the audio is out of sync by as much as a second sometimes. The amount of lag wavers and seems to improve a bit when the video's been playing for a while but yeah, it's definitely there and it started with that driver.

 

Repeated uninstalls and reinstalls of the driver haven't helped. The lag also doesn't occur when disconnected from the dock and using the laptop's internal audio.

 

Has anyone been able to fix this or do I have to submit a support ticket to hopefully get Lenovo to maybe fix this some day? This T480 has had nothing but problems and the dock seems no better. Thanks.

I have the exact same issue with my new X1 extreme and thunderbolt 3 dock...

 

I think the issue is the same as discussed here?

If it is - it lookst like they are working on it... I cross my fingers for it to be sooner than later :-)

Good find, thank you!

 

I should be able to roll back the driver like they said in the thread too. Wish they'd caught this in testing but at least they acknowledged it.
