I am totally in the dark about what kind of adaptors exist to connect an external monitor to my Yoga 900 13isk2 via the USB-C port. I would like to connect to either a DP1.2 UHD (3840 x 2160) or to a dell 2560 x 1600 panel that accepts DP or dual link DVI. I may also wish to connect to a 1920 x 1200 panel via DVI.
Where can I find out which products are compatible? I haven't fully understood the implications of USB-C 3.0 vs 3.1 or 3.2. I would probably purchase the necessary part off amazon, and I am based in the UK. Does anyone have a definitive guide to connecting external monitors to the Yoga 900 13isk2? I didn't purchase this premium model on the basis that I would have to experiment with third party adaptors until finding one that works. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

The TYPE C usb port of the Lenovo Yoga 3 Supports the following:
• USB 3.0
• Native display port 1.2 video output
• VGA/HDMI output using Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (sold separately)
With this I would recommend that you try reading this post for Type-C adapters for the Yoga 910, https://forums.lenovo.com..., there's a couple of adapters mentioned on the thread that worked great, but I'm not sure if they are available in UK.
Hope this helps you with you choice.
