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!

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!

I don't have one of these, but this is what the base spec says:
NVIDIA® GeForce® 940M, PCI Express 3.0, 2GB memory
Max resolution: 2560x1600@60Hz (HDMI)
