Hi, I'm new to the forums and just recently bought the Yoga 900. I was just wondering if it is possible to connect a graphics card to this laptop. I've tried to google it, but cannot seem to find a definitive answer. Any help would be much apprciated. Thanks!
EDIT: I did notice that it is possible to connect a eGPU with a thunderbolt connection but could not find any mention of the yoga 900's USB type c port supporting thunderbolt.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi xenocider ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As this was also discussed on this thread.
Yoga 900 USB Type C is not Thunderbolt 3 compatible
As per article:
The new USB Type-C port supports:
- USB 3.0
- native display port 1.2 video output
- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)
(Ref: page 8 of https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/y
Adding to the above: Gigabit Ethernet via any of several 3rd party USB-C-to-USB3 adapters that also feature an RJ45 jack.
Articles for reviews:
USB 3.1 Type-C port. There are no indications that this is a Gen. 2 Type-C port (10 Gbps) with Thunderbolt capability

There are many hubs with external monitors.
My Yoga900 is connected to an Aluratek which gives a bunch. Do I now have a DVI Monitor, a HDMI monitor, and the laptop all active same time (also Ethernet, bunch of USB, headphones).
Its basically a USB3 docking station.
If you check Yoga 900 page here I think there is a Lenovo "docking station" with similar features.
