YOGA 700 External Monitor - maximum resolution

Hello,

 

I am currently thinking about buying a 4k monitor or ultra-wide external display.

Does anyone know which kind of resolution the Lenovo Yoga 700 with the 940M GPU supports? I would be interested in 4k or 3440 x 1440 or 2560 x 1080, but I don't know whether these resolutions are supported and if so at which hertz rate.

 

I could not find any information on the Lenovo support page regarding this matter. Not even which HDMI type the notebook has...

 

Any information would be useful. Thank you!

Cheers,
Mark

Re: YOGA 700 External Monitor - maximum resolution

Hi Mark

I have the same question and whilst I don't have a definitive answer here are some pointers.

According to this site http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-940M.138027.0.html the NVIDIA GeForce 940M supports  4k video resolution, but HDMI 2.0 is not supported.

This site http://www.gpuzoo.com/GPU-NVIDIA/GeForce_940M_128-bit.html says the max digital resolution is 3840x2160.

If you're into gaming (I'm not) this site https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2643/geforce-940m says "we recommend the NVIDIA GeForce 940M for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1280x720".

As far as I can see the limiting factor will be the HDMI port. As I understand it the HDMI physical design chosen by Lenovo will limit the maximum resolution and frequency.

I'm going to take my 700 to a retailer and connect up to a demo monitor to find out for myself what can be achieved!

Cheers

Chris

Hi,

 

I don't have one of these, but this is what the base spec says:

I can confirm it works fine on a 2560 x 1440 Dell U2715H Monitor.

And we're back...
