Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBM USB-C to DisplayPort adapter / 144Hz monitor



I have Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBM

Lenovo Y520-15 - Intel Core i5-7300HQ 2.5/3.5GHz; GeForce GTX 1060M MaxQ 6GB GDDR5; 8GB DDR4; 128GB SSD m.2NVMe ADATA SX7000 + 1TB HDD; 15,6" FHD; Windows10


I want to buy 144Hz monitor. Should I buy USB-C to DisplayPort cable adapter like that:


or mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter?

The user guide doesnt mention the Type C port being compatible with video output (The Y530s explicitly mentions this), so to be safe I would go with Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort.



It looks like while the guide doesn't mention it, it supports video out.


In theory, either of those adaptors would work. To me, the Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort is still the safer bet.
