Lenovo Thinkpad L540 chaining display issue

Dear Lenovo Community,


we are experiencing major performance drops when chaining 2 Displays using displayport 1.2 on a L540. The performance drops to like 1-10 FPS in windows. We tried to fix the problem with using the newst firmware / drivers and bios update. Turns out it didnt help at all.

See attachment for the stats of the machine.


The strange part about this is that we are using the exact same setup a L540 (same stats) and same displays, newst firmware, drivers for another employee without any issues.


we are using 2x DellUltraSharpU2415 Displays. (chaining from one Display to another with Displayport cables and enabling displayport 1.2)


If anyone knows a solution to this problem, please share it.


thanks in advance.
