Yoga S740-14IIL - type of USB type A connectors?

2019-11-10, 20:37 PM

Hello,

I am a litte bit confused with the available information about the type of the 2 USB-A connectors on left and right side of the chassis of Yoga S740, 14inch.

 

The Lenovo web shop for Germany says its USB 3.1 (Generation 2 = 10 Gbps) (see https://www.lenovo.com/de/de/laptops/yoga/yoga-s-series/Lenovo-Yoga-S740-14IIL/p/81RS0016GE) whereas, the manual says it is USB 3.1 (Generation 1 = 5 Gbps). The logo close to the connectors on my Yoga S740 says "SS" - if I remember correctly Gen 2 should have a "SS+" logo, so probably it is a Gen 1 only.

Unfortunately, I don't have any devices with Gen 2 interface, so I cannot validate my assumption.

 

Anyone here has an idea?

 

Thank you,

Thomas

Hi ,

 

Greetings!

 

Apologies for the confusion. The Yoga S740-14IIL has 2 USB - A Gen 1. Please refer to the Product System reference and User Guide on page 6. 

 

We do appreciate your time bringing this to our attention and no worries as this concern has been reported to the appropriate team to correct the information in our shop website.

 

Hope this clarifies your query.

Dear Auxen,

 

Thanks for the update. Looking on the website the information seems already changed now (https://www.lenovo.com/de/de/laptops/yoga/yoga-s-series/Lenovo-Yoga-S740-14IIL/p/88YGS701250).

 

Given the fact that USB is already specified up to 3.2 (Gen 2x2 , 20 Gbps for type C connectors) I had hoped that the type A connectors on the Yoga S740 would be Gen.2 already.

But anyhow, I don't have any equipment that would make use of the higher speed, yet. So I won't complain further :-)

Thomas
