I'm new to the forum. Recently I got a ThinkPad T490 + ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 docking station for work. My manager asked me to purchase two 27" monitors (each under US$350) so I got two LG 27UL500-W 27" monitors and planning to run dual monitor setup. I'm hoping with the LG 27UL500-W monitors, I can run 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) @ 60HZ. However I remember seeing in the T490 manual that I would need a "Thunderbolt 3" monitor in order to drive two external monitors at 4K @ 60HZ. It seems that if I'm using one HDMI and one DisplayPort, then I would only be able to run these two external monitors (using the Thunderbold 3 docking station), at 4K @ 30HZ at most.
1. Is this true? If so, is there any possible work-around that I can still run 4K@60HZ on these two LG 27" monitors via the docking station?
2. I suppose that I can't run ONE monitor at 4K @ 60HZ, and the other at 4K @ 30HZ, right??
3. If I really have to get a "Thunderbolt 3" 27" monitor (in order to drive both monitors at 4K @ 60HZ), which 27" monitor people would recommend (for such system configuration)?
p.s. By the way, the docking station that I have is the "Lenovo USA ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock Gen 2 135W (40AN0135US) Dual UHD 4K Display Capability, 2 HDMI, 2 DP, USB-C, USB 3.1"
