Thinkpad USB 3.0 Pro Dock, Lenovo vs Displaylink driver, regarding Firmware upgrade

Hello,

 

the driver provided by Displaylink says in the readme:

 

This software release contains an embedded firmware image.
DL-1xxx/DL-3xxx/DL-41xx/DL-5xxx/DL-6xx0 devices will be automatically updated
with this firmware upon connection.

https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/windows

 

 

but the driver provided by Lenovo has no such information in the readme, nor have I found a separate firmware upgrade download for it.

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/fi/en/solutions/acc100184

 

Is the firmware upgrade applicable to Lenovo USB3.0 ProDock? Is the Lenovo dock one of those listed DL-xxxx devices?

Does the driver provided by Lenovo also contain the firmware upgrade? The driver file name is even "generic displaylink driver", so one would think it's the same.

 

 

We have a lot of these USB Pro Docks, MT:40A7, and some of them need frequent rebooting because of various problems. Not saying a fw upgrade would solve everything, but maybe some of it. Should we stick to the 8.5 driver provided by Lenovo, or use 9.0 provided by Displaylink?
