Triple monitors with X1 Carbon 6gen and ultra dock

2019-08-22, 13:30 PM

I have Lenovo X1 Carbon 6gen with i7-8550U docked in the Lenovo Ultra Dock and I just bought three Lenovo P27h lcds. Those LCDs are connected via two displayport connectors. In one displayport connector is one lcd, in second is two lcds in daisy chain configuration.


All lcds works but the problem is that on the one is highest availaible resulotion just 1920x1200 or 1920x1080. It is not the problem of lcd or the daisy chain because when I disconnet one lcd I get the proper resolution on it also (2560x1440). According to intel specs it should not be problem of graphics card which should be powerfull enought to handle it.


Do anyone have similar issue? Do anyone have an idea how to solve it?


Thank you. Ondrej.


EDIT: Forgot to mention I have Windows 10 Pro 1903 with latest updates and with latest drivers installed via Lenovo Companion App.

Hi OndrejM, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!


Sounds about right for three monitors on the Ultra Dock - the third will display at lower resolution:


USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works. I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
