Hello GroovyMan!


Welcome to community forums

 


According to the product spreadsheet, the computer can have a maximum of 2 external displays via USB-C (up to 5K @ 60Hz) and you can refer to this link: https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkBook/ThinkBook_16p_G2_ACH

 


You can also refer to the user guide: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_thinkbook_14p_16p_userguide_en.pdf?linkTrack=PSP:ProductInfo:UserGuide

 

You can get the list of compatible docking stations from the links below:

Hope that helps

Thank you for your quick response.

 

The ThinkBook 16p G2 model seems to be quite new, so i was not able to find it in the Matríx of Docking Stations.
Finally, then Dock-Finder Link in https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories/um006391-accessories-and-options-compatibility-matrix-ocm

shows a 404 ;-(

 

Currently i am running a docking-solution with a DisplayLink chip, running 2 + displaylink connected Displays and another

one with USB-C DP that works quite fast, but does not seem to be very durable, So i need one reboot a day under Windows-10
that may be acceptable (for a period of time). Anyway i was focues on using Linux, but the DisplayLink promise of supporting
Linux is a dirty lie!

 

My idea was to get rid of a DisplayLink based solution, but i am not sure, iff there exist an alternative for AMD-Notebooks, that are
normally not equipped with a Thunderbold support.

I was able to open the link, can you try it this time?

 

You can check the listed 4 compatible docks for your machine via smartfind: https://accessorysmartfind.lenovo.com/#/search?categoryL1Name=Docking&categoryL2Names&keyword=&pageIndex=1&pageSize=40&query=20ym&systemId=
