ThinkPad X1 extreme gen 2: Can't download Monitor X-Rite Color Assistant to calibrate monitor. RAM

2019-12-06, 20:58 PM

Hi there, I have a few questions about the ThinkPad extreme gen 2:

1) I wish to ensure that my monitor is calibrated correctly after a fresh install of windows 10 on it. Does the Monitor .INF File have anything to do with this? Can the X-Rite Color Assistant help calibrate my specific monitor? I can´t seem to download it on the website. It says my S/N is not eligible for this product. I am entering my serial number like this (9 digits) R9-0XXXXX.

Please help?

2) Does this laptop with the GTX 1650 video card have gsync with external or internal monitors through HDMI or USB-C?

3) Can this laptop play VR with Oculus Rift S?

4) Is this the correct ThinkPad Ethernet Extension Cable for the ThinkPad Extreme Gen 2? https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/accessories-and-monitors/cables-and-adapters/adapters/CABLE-BO-TP-Ethernet-Ext-Cable/p/4X90F84315

5) What are the advantages of using the ethernet extension cable over using a ethernet dongle over USB-C? Is it faster or slower speeds? Can both do wake-up on LAN? Is the MAC address affected in any way?

6) What is the read and write speed of the SD Card reader?

7) I want to ask these questions to a Lenovo employee who can guarantee correct answers, do you know how I can call or email them with questions?

8) Does support through a ticket here cost money? https://www.managedtechnicalsupportaccess.com/mtsarva/lenovo.html

9) What is my machine type? It´s suppose to be a 4 digit number used to submit a ticket on https://www.managedtechnicalsupportaccess.com/mtsarva/lenovo.html

10) Which RAM is compatible with this laptop? Can the RAM be higher than 2666MHz?

12) Can any one confirm if any of these models in 2x 32 GB configuration are working?

12) Is the RAM that comes with the extreme gen 2 a ECC memory?

13) What CL latency should I be looking for in RAM? (CL=19 ?)
