Upgrading from W541 to P51s - Dual GPU and 4 displays with dock

I am upgrading from a W541 with Quadro K1100M to a P51s with Quadro M520. 


The issue is on my W541 I was able to use my docking station for 3 monitors and then the Display Port / Thunderbolt 2 on the side of the laptop for a 4th monitor, with the laptop lid closed. 


On the P51s it seems that I cannot do that. I can either have 2 displays from the docking station and one off the USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 adapter. Or if I unplug the USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 adapter then all 3 displays from the docking station show up. 


Is it not possible with the P51s to use all 3 displays from the docking station and then one more on the side dongle? I guess the P51s doesn't have an"Optimus" graphics adapter that lets us use both graphic adapters.
