W540 Dock compatability


I own a W540 20BG, looking do get a (few) docking station(s) for home/work. I am trying to run dual 2560x1440 displays, they support HDMI and Displayport


Is the Thunderbolt 3 dock compatible with the W540 ?  Which USB 3.0 dock is compatible and will support the resolutions?


thank you in advance!

Re: W540 Dock compatability

Welcome to the Community

Take a look at the Options Compatibility Matrix

Tap at "P" tab, expand some rows and columns for W540 and some old docks.

Regarding the resolution:
- follow the page below for non usb 3.0 docks
- follow the USB 3.0 docks descriptions and User Guides by the links on the page below
