Hi tietaja,

 

Greetings.

 

The Type C USB port do offers both USB 3.0 & DP 1.2 (shown here as item 3 page 9). 

VGA/HDMI output using Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (sold separately).

 

You can review this post for further reference on how fellow members manage 4K Video out with the USB C to HDMI adapter: Yoga 910 4K Video out 

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Thanks
The monitor connects just fine, but I loose the ability to use the headphone on the Yoga 910. Somehow when plugging in the USB-C for the Video out, it blocks the audio 3,5 mm signal. The monitor I use has no Audio out. I'd rather use headphones, not to disturb others

Re: External Monitor for Yoga 910

Depending on the adapter, you can possibly change the sound back to Windows. When you plug in a USB-C to HDMI adapter, both the video and audio are switched to that device. Right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar and click on "Open Sound Settings." At the top of the resulting window is a dropdown that should list the adapter ("E42VA Intel Display Audio" in my case) and "Speakers" (Followed by RealTek or whatever)  Choose Speakers. That should allow the video to go to the monitor and revert the audio back to the laptop, allowing you to use the headphone jack. Again, might not work with all adapters.

Re: External Monitor for Yoga 910

Ok. Thanks
I switched to USB-C/HDMI. I do not know why I picked up the USB-C/DP, maybe because I saw somewhere in the Monitor User Manual that it was the only means to deliver UHD 4K in 60Hz, but i am doing photos solo so if I run 30Hz does not matter. Case closed. Thanks
