Is yoga 900 USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 compatible?

Hi all.

I can't find this information. I would like to use an external GPU connected to the USB Type-C of the yoga 900. I know that the razr and new dell xps 13 does support them.

In fact, Dell says (from it's site): "Thunderbolt™ 3 supporting: Power in/charging, PowerShare, Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps bi-directional), USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps), VGA, HDMI, Ethernet and USB-A via Dell Adapter (sold separately)" but there is almost no information from lenovo's site.

 

I've only used VGA and HDMI adaptars on this port, but i really want to use an external GPU. Any information would help!

 

Regards,

Julián

FYI: I borrowed a friend's Dell Thunderbolt 3 Dock (Model: R3YYP), and I was not able to get it to work.  I spent a bit of time updating drivers, BIOS, and firmware to see if I could get it working, but I did not succeed.

I believe that it is... All usb-c should work with thunderbolt 3 and vice versa

Unfortunately, that article is saying thunderbolt 3 is backward compatible with USB-C, but some USB-C ports are older and sometimes slower than Thunderbolt 3.  I have tried several Thunderbolt 3 docks with my yoga 900, and none of them work.  Which means no dual 4K displays from a thunderbolt 3 dock.  😣
