Thinkpad E590/R590 - 4K 60HZ external display connection

2020-10-19, 3:15 AM

Hi

 

I have 4k external display and when I connect to the the only USB C port vis USB C To Display Port cable I get 4K at 60 hz the only problem this same port is also used to charge the laptop.

 

So is there any solution such as hub , dock, Splitter cable I can use to charge and get 4K 60hz on my external monitor ?

 

Thanks

Hello VikVik,

 

It does indeed look like the only solution is a dock of some kind. Smartfind has some compatible ones for the Thinkpad E590. 

The USB-C Mini Dock that I looked is sporting these features:

  • One Cable, Endless Capabilities
  • Easily connect to an external 4K or 1080P display* with HDMI or VGA, wired RJ45 network, two USB-A devices, and USB-C power pass-through – all via a single USB-C cable that disappears inside the minimalist design.
  • Compact Design, Lenovo Brand
  • Compatible with Lenovo branded USB-C notebooks thanks to easy, driverless plug-and-play. Power any notebook up to 45W with the included 65W USB-C power adaptor.
  • Enterprise Networking and Security
  • The Lenovo USB-C Mini Dock provides secure enterprise network manageability such as PXE boot and Wake-On LAN. It also supports passing ThinkPad Mac through the dock for IT to identify the system in large networks accurately

 

Hope this helps

 

Regards

My laptop manual says I can only get up to 4096 x 2160 pixels at 24 Hz with HDMI connected directly from laptop.

 

So by using this dock can I still get 4K at 60HZ by using the docks HDMI port  ??

 

Thanks
