x1 carbon w/ intel HD graphics 5500...displayport 1.2 MST

2015-10-04, 16:38 PM

Can anyone verify that the newer X1 carbons w/ the Intel HD graphics 5500 are displayport 1.2 MST?

 

I had planned on getting another x1 (current has intel HD 4000) for the 16gb memory and 512 SSD PCI.  I need to be able to drive two external monitors in extended mode.  I do a lot of CAD and construction takeoff work.

 

My current x1 will only drive dual, external monitors in duplicate mode.

 

I have searched over the net, the intel site, and here concerning the DP 1.2 MST with the Intel HD 5500.  I was able to find out that the intel HD 4000 is only displayport 1.1 which is why I can't get extended desktop with two external monitors via the mini DP port.

 

Thanx in advance.

Lenovo has been building the x1 with 16gb for a couple months now.  They also offer the 512gb Samsung SSD PCI drive.

 

I have owned several x1's and so far no issues.  I use mine on the desktop and on the road.

I still doubt they have a 16gb version since I never seen any video of X1 carbon with 16GB ram even one guy who bought a X1 carbon Said it only comes with max 8GB RAM from Lenovo so do you have any proof that X1 carbon exists with 16gb?

 

I just checked store from lenovo even that says they only got 8GB version as maximum so i think your getting false facts about there is 16GB RAM version there is no x1 carbon with 16GB only 8GB RAM

 

proof

you need to change website language thought to english but it proves to you that lenovo only sels X1 Carbon with max 8GB RAM and not any 16GB.

 

Since lenovo has X1 and X1 Carbon these are 2 diffirent models X1 is a notebook i think that has up to 16GB ram while X1 Carbon is a Ultrabook that exists with max of 8GB RAM.

well thats odd then since store page is only giving up to max 8GB as vailable memory

4GB DDR3L-12800 1600 MHz
8GB DDR3L-12800 1600 MHz

at http://shop.lenovo.com/se/sv/laptops/thinkpad/x-series/x1-carbon/index.html
so either listed 16GB ones are for office purpose only or is planned to come.

Jake, looked at link you provided.

 

Interesting that you can order with 256ssd PCI.  That option is not available on the US site.

 

You can't order with 16gb memory but in US we can.

that might be why i havent found any 16GB version around here in europe yet, could be that USA gets the 16GB one first before lenovo decides to sell 16GB one in europe as well :/

Online store offers laptop with CTO models, their specification changing might not be in time with production, fixed configuration including.

Also, change the part "se/sv" to the "us/en" in the URL above. And check out available memory options again.
