U2720Q, USB Type-C, disconnect/reconnect

I bought a new Dell U2720Q monitor yesterday. The monitor look great but I got a problem with USB Type-C connection. Sometime the monitor got disconnected automatically and reconnect again after that. It usually happen when a new window is open or close. Here are videos 1 and 2.

My machine is a laptop running non-supported Ubuntu 20.04, GTX 1650 running latest Nvidia driver. I also notice that the problem also happened when I was opening a game in Windows, usually when I open a game, Assassin's Creed Odyssey to be specific.
* What Windows PC model?
* What operating system?
* What GPU?
* Does it happen in any other game on the Windows PC?


It seem like there is a bug with PD implementation because when I connect the laptop charging cable, that does not happen.
The U2720Q/U2720QM USB Type-C power delivery only provides up to 90W. What is the wattage of the supplied power AC adapter on the Windows PC laptop?

I found this post on reddit which might related.
That thread specifically deals with the U3419W and U3818DW which use the older Ti TPS6598E power delivery chip.

Sorry, this is first time I buy a Dell monitor and this community. I using my laptop to test the monitor. The laptop configuration is:
- Model: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme 2nd

- OS: Windows 10, version 10.0.19041
- GPU: GTX 1650 MaxQ

-  Type C disconnect when open AC Odyssey: 
- The disconnection problem also happen when I stress test the system: play a 4K video, running Cinebench + 3D mark at the same time in Windows 10: .
- It also happen when I compile a big project in Linux.
- My laptop has 135W charger but it support up to 100W PD, so I think 90W is very closed to my laptop specs.
