T480 and Lenovo Thunderbolt Graphics Dock?

I own a Thinkpad T480 (20L5: Intel UHD graphics, Core i5 8th gen) and since it supports Thunderbolt 3, I want to attach an external GPU and display for light gaming. I see that Lenovo itself has a "Lenovo Thunderbolt Graphics Dock" but does not offer that as compatible with the Thinkpad series. Nevertheless, as Thunderbolt 3 is a standard, I am wondering if the Graphics Dock works with the T480. Did anybody already try that?

Dear Customer,

Thanks for your asking.

 

As you mentioned, Thunderbolt 3 is common, technically,Lenovo Thunderbolt Graphic Dock can work with T480.

However, we DON'T recommend it because Lenovo not officially qualify and fine tune the compatibility, you may meet some compatibility problem which impacts your user experience.

 

Sincerely yours.

Did you try this and if so, did it work well?
I was having the same idea.

Sorry, I haven’t tried and also don’t use an eGPU at all so far with my T480.
