T440p Dual-Mode DisplayPort (DisplayPort++)

Where can I get cables and adapters for the Dual-mode DisplayPort (DisplayPort++) output port.  I want to connect multiple monitors to my laptop for use at home, without buying a docking station.  I already have an old VGA monitor connected to the VGA output.  Are there any other options for connecting additional monitors other than the DisplayPort++ output and docking station?  I've searched Amazon, E-Bay, Best Buy, and nobody seems to have any cables or adaptors that support DisplayPort++.

Hi App1dak,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

As I understand that you have query regarding Dual Mode Display for your T440p 

May be using Mini-DisplayPort to VGA Adapter or VGA splitter will come handy if you don't want to use dock.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 
Regards,
Prabhansh

Re: T440p Dual-Mode DisplayPort (DisplayPort++)

Thanks, I haven't shopped for electronics in quite a while.  My work has supplied everything I need.  But they just let us start to work from home, but we can't take dock or monitors with us, so I've been looking for some to use for Lenovo.

 

I looked at the mini DiplayPort adapters, and they looked like they were correct size, but none displayed the DP++ symbol, so I wasn't sure if they supported the dual-mode DisplayPort signal.  Does that just refer to the source signal in the laptop from the graphics card?  Will any mini DisplayPort adapter, with dual outputs, support multiple monitors?

Hi again, 

 

If you are planning to connect the external monitor which is having VGA ports Mini DP to VGA Adpter will work.

And here's the link for MDP++ to VGA Adapter 

And if you have plan to connect external monitor which has HDMI ports one can use Lenovo Mini DP to HDMI Adapter. To know more about Mini DP++ check this

Depending upon requirement you can use the Adapters for your system.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

 
Cheers,
Prabhansh

Re: T440p Dual-Mode DisplayPort (DisplayPort++)

Thanks again.  Good info.

I had read that Wiki page for DisplayPort and dual-mode DisplayPort.  I guess that's where I got the idea that the adapter cable should have the DP++ symbol on it, like the port on my laptop.
