The new USB Type-C port supports:

- USB 3.0

- native display port 1.2 video output

- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)

A 3rd party USB-C/GigE adapter. In my brief testing it seems to work and supports GigE speeds. Presented as an example, not an endorsement. Anker USB-C to 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Ethernet Adapter for USB Type-C Devices

Thanks for adding your research and testing, Z! Great to know that the device delivers what it claims. I'm sure that it'll be useful for certain configurations / office setups. :)

The Minix multiport adaptor is accepted and does sport a 1Gbit ethernet as well as HDMI (and micro+standard SD, two USB3).

 

It runs very hot though, so I guess it is not very energie efficient. WOuld not use that if you are on the road.

Has anyone successfully used a USB-c to hdmi adapter? I bought one from cablematters but cannot get it to work.

A Cable Matters 201018-BLK USB-C to HDMI adapter works fine with my Yoga 900-13ISK. Is your laptop a -13ISK or -13ISK2? It's possible that there is a difference.

I small comment on the minix.

 

It runs hot only when connected to Ethernet. So for a dual card reader, 2*USB, and HDMI + second usb-c connecter it works just great.
