X280: Dual4k@60Hz possible?

Hallo everyone,


currently I am using a X280 Laptop and I am locking for a docking solution which allows me to use two 4k monitors at 60Hz. Has anyone experiences in this regard?


It looks like the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 dock is not able to support this configuration.


Would the ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C and USB-A Dock (40AF)  (altough i don't understand why a USB-C dock is more capable then a thunderbolt dock) or a third party TB3-Dock be a viable option?

Hi @MBecker!


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.


I've checked all the compatible docking stations for your ThinkPad X280 using Smart Find and the only docking station can support Two 4k Displays was ThinkPad Pro Docking Station (40AH) however the refresh rate when using Two 4k Display is 30Hz only.
