Lenovo Yoga 720 compatibility with TB3 adapter


#1

Is the Lenovo Yoga 720 13" compatible with the Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort adapter?

Thanks for posting!

Your timing is fortuitous, as we just received our Lenovo Yoga 720 in our test lab. Unfortunately, the Lenovo Yoga 720 only supports one additional display via its Thunderbolt 3 output.

While our adapter does work with the system, this internal system limitation means that only one output of our Thunderbolt 3 Dual Display adapter will work. As such, we do not recommend our Thunderbolt 3 Dual Display adapter for the Lenovo Yoga 720 system (we have updated our compatibility table on our product pages to reflect this -> http://plugable.com/products/tbt3-dp2x/)

While we would not recommend our Thunderbolt 3 Dual Display adapters for this system, our USB-C to DisplayPort (http://plugable.com/products/usbc-dp/) and USB-C to HDMI (http://plugable.com/products/usbc-hdm…) cables do work with the system to add one additional display.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Hello, will the Lenovo Yoga 720 15" work with the Thunderbolt to 2 displayport adapter?

Hi Andrei,

Our current understanding is that both of the Yoga 720 models (13" & 15") only support one display over Thunderbolt 3.

So neither of the Yoga 720 models will be able to utilize the functionality of our Thunderbolt 3 dual output adapters.

There is an interesting thread on Reddit discussing Thinkpad specifications. From information contained in this thread, it seems that the only current Lenovo systems that support dual video output over Thunderbolt 3 are the models which have 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports.
