A nice double: Thinkpad 25 combined with the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock

2018-06-12, 9:01 AM

Even though Lenovot stats that the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics dock does only "officialy" work with the Ideapad 720s it does work pretty well with the Thinkpad 25.

 

All functions do work, installation was simple and I could increase the video capabilities threetimes.

 

It makes my Desktop PC and my former dockingstation both useless, and it is that small :-)

Sigurd4Wrap, was loooking for this solution, but newer had a chance to get my hands on dock. Are you planning to run some benchamrks?

 

I've promised to run FurMakr on GTX 1050 (4GB) next week. We can compare results.

Hi Pavlo,

 

yes, for sure. I can do this at the weekend. I will try Furmark (haven't used it before) and post the results.

 

Regards,

 

Sigurd
