I have just purchased Lenovo Thinkpad A485 Ryzen.
I see that there is additional usb-c port along with an HDMI port.
I am planing to connect 2 external monitors to the laptop. Thats a total of 3 diplays. The Laptop built in display + 2 Aditional external displays.
My questions is:
Is this supported with the A485 Ryzen? For all 3 displays to be working at the same time? I was told that there is a linmitation on the AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphpics card where I am able to connect only 1 additional external display.
If that is the case and I can not add 2 additional diplays to work along side with the built in display at the same time, will a docking station be an alternative that can provde a solution to my issue?
For example I am looking at the bellow docking stations:
ThinkPad 90W Ultra Dock
Lenovo ThinkPad USB 3.0 Ultra Dock
Will docking station be an alternative ?

Welcome to the Community Forums!
The A485 has two ports for external display (USB-C and HDMI) it can only work with one display if the main LCD display is turned on. It can only light up two screens at the same time.
A docking station would be the very best option for you to be able to add additional displays. You can find the compatible docking stations by entering the model of your computer here on this link

The information given here is not accurate, I have A485, I can have 2 external displays lighted up, while having the built-in screen turned on as well.
