Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

Did you try the Plugable https://plugable.com/products/tbt3-dp2x/ ? You can't run dual 4k @ 60Hz off USB-C that needs Thunderbolt 3.

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

Thanks for straightening me out. Guys at Bestbuy just gave me a USB-C dock that didn't work. then i went and ordered another usb-c dock thinking that was good enough. However, with the plugable dock you sent the link for, Yoga 920 isn't listed as compatible, and the closest is a yoga 720 but it says it will only support 1 monitor. I'm thinking i shoudl return this yoga and go back to HP.

Try it first you can return the TB device. If you want to understand I posted in painstaiking detail at https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/7c93zi/any_point_in_getting_a_thunderbolt_display_to_use/...

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

So your Yoga 920 works with OWC TB3 Dock? How many display have you tried? Thanks.

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

Just one Dell 34 in display. With that said, my 920 seemed to have died today. Wont turn on, no charge indicator when plugged in.

 

I was using it on my lap, froze up, hit the power button to restart and thats it. UGH, lasted all of a week for me.

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

I returned the 920 and Lenovo TB3 dock and  bought

http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-spectre-x360-15-bl152nr?ups-sku=1WB97AV_1&pStoreID=epp

and the HP TB3 90W dock. Does a superb job running 2 external 4K monitiors at 60Hz along with the laptop 4k display. HP's site doesnt recommend this dock and there is one oddity, the power light on the dock doesnt light up but it noticed the dock and monitors as soon as i plugged it in. USB ports all work too. I also use Ethernet here.  Machine specs are a bit better than the yoga 920. Really love Lenovo so it was a painful choice to switch to HP.

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

I found another portable dock that works great and includes ethernet.

I also verified the Dell portable USB-C dock works as well.

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

I just bought a 920 and TB3 dock and am having the same issue.

Not sure what jetshine did differently to make that work.

I have one monitor working but all other ports, including ethernet, doesn't work.

I also applied the latest firmware for the dock.

 

Have you figured something out?

Re: Yoga 920 and Thunderbolt Dock

Ok, problem solved. Just download the Intel Thunderbolt Software and that's it.
