Two 2k monitors on Yoga 720

Hi,

It seems that Yoga 720 has Thunderbold capable connector. Is it possible to connect two 2k monitors (Dell U2515H, QHD 2560x1440)?

What kind of dock do I have to get?

 

Thanks,

Ivan

Anyone? I have to return it by EOB tomorrow if there is no way to connect 2 displays (preferably 2k, but FHD will do).

Thanks,

Re: Two 2k monitors on Yoga 720

Did you find an answer to this? I'm having the same problem.

I have an adaptor thunderbolt 3 to 2x hdmi's but only one external display will work at a time.

 

I would even be satisfied if I could disable the laptop screen and use the 2 bigger displays. 

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Two 2k monitors on Yoga 720

Hi Janey,

Unfortunately not. It seems there is no way to connect 2 2k monitors (or in any other resolution) to Yoga 720.

Alternative is Yoga 370 which is ThinkPad and supports OneLink dock.

A guy from from StarTech support suggested using 2 adapters on 2 USB 3.0 ports. I haven't tried that.

Fow now I'm using one 2k monitor and laptop as a secondary monitor, but will replace the laptop when I get a change. Supposedly HP envy supports 2 2k monitors as do various other laptops in the price range. 

What bugs me the most is how Yoga 720 is marketed as "Thunderbolt 3.0" ultra fast laptop, but implements only 1/2 of Thunderbolt 3.0...

 

It would be nice to have someone from Lenovo answer this and offer a solution (or final no-go). But until now Lenovo support is deaf-mute-autistic regarding the problem.

 

Good luck,

Ivan

Re: Two 2k monitors on Yoga 720

Sorry not sorry, Ivan, but you're wrong. The Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 dock fully works with the Yoga 720. I use it everyday running dual Dell 25" QHD at 60Hz and internal laptop display at UHD. It can not do dual UHD@60Hz, as that must exceed 20gbps or whatever, but dual QHD is no problem. You can even daisy-chain dual QHD from a single DP port on the dock. See my posts in the Docking Station Compatibility thread (sorry, too lazy to link it here).

 

Get that dock from B&H, better price than Lenovo direct and they actually have pictures and accurate description unlike Lenovo's awful product page.

Hi snake2332,
That is indeed a great news! I'll get the TB dock immediately! Found your posts and read them.
Thanks for trying (and doing).

I can't speak to the Yoga 720 issue, but for the record the ThinkPad Yoga 370 does not have a OneLink port.

Sure thing, Ivan! I'm glad my post could help someone. Sadly, I have zero kudos on that post, even after all my effort and trying-and-returning the Wavlink dock.

 

Oh look, I got 1 kudo on my "cpu + gpu repaste" thread.

I feel so under-appreciated...wait, now I sound like my wife, uh oh!

And we're back...
