Yoga 720 - external monitor troubleshooting.

2018-05-02, 1:52 AM

In a strange twist Lenovo decided not to include a dedicated display port with the 720 13". The USB-C Thunderbolt port can be used as a displayport, but then, obviously, can't be used as a thunderbolt 3 port.

I have a $800 dollar thunderbolt 3 sound card. What I'd like to do is get video out of my laptop to a bigger monitor so I can do work.

I tried a USB-3 docking station and it was a nightmare.

Is there any way I can use an external docking port to access the displayport in my laptop AND connect my thunderbolt 3 soundcard?

I erroneously assumed that all this new technology would enable me to use multiple displays like on my old desktop computer, but what I'm finding is the USB3 solution introduced tons of lag, when it worked at all, and slowed down my computer.

If anyone has any solutions, please let me know.
