How many external monitors does this machine support simultaneously, without a dock?
It is a December 2017 / January 2018 build P51, with an NVIDIA Quadro M1200 4GB GDDR5 graphics card.
Native display is 3840x2160.
Available display ports are HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, and USB-C.
Operating system is Windows 10 Pro.
Thanks in advance.

Thinkpad Workstation 230W Dock (http://a.co/e9zxofo).
Edit: Worth noting that the 4K screen connected via USB-C is connected directly to the laptop; the dock does not have a USB-C connector.

Derek, I am trying the same setup you are and it will not pick up the 3 monitor via USB-C / HDMI or Mini Displayport on the laptop?
Did you have to enable those while docked somewhere?
