P70 USB 3 and Thunderbolt 3 Port Controller Questi...

Q: P70 USB 3 and Thunderbolt 3 Port Controller Questi...

I'm thinking of getting a P70, I see it has 4 USB 3 ports and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports. My questions are: 1: Is each of the USB 3 ports connected to their own controller so that each port is capable of it's maximum bandwidth? Or are all four ports connected to the same controller so that the data bandwidth is divided among the four ports? 2: Similar Thunderbolt 3 port question. Is each of the two Thunderbolt 3 ports connected to it's own controller? Or is the bandwidth shared between the two ports? I'm planning on using the USB 3 ports (maybe Thunderbolt 3 also) with a high end, high data rate USB 3 camera that, according to the specs, can use up 95% of the USB 3 bandwidth. If I were to use two cameras at the same time, it would not work if all four ports are connected to the same controller/bus and sharing the bandwidth. I have read that laptops usually share all USB ports on the same controller. I'm hopeing it will be different with the P70, being a "professional" workstation class product. Thanks

Hi,
I myself own an XPS 15 9550 and noticed that I was not getting the full Thunderbolt 3 speedover it's Thunderbolt 3 port. I expected speeds around 2700MB/s, because of the overhead withthe theoretical gross speed of 3870MB/s, but I only ever got 1400MB/s out of it.
I did some digging and found out that none of the XPS notebooks with Thunderbolt 3 are evenable to achieve the full TB3 speeds, because they are only connected with two PCI Express lanes (x2.3).You can read more about this on the following links:Dell Subreddit PostChipset Digging on Forum

Thunderbolt 3 and the promised speeds were the MAIN REASON I even bought this notebook.I feel very cheated here.

Since January I tried to fix my Thunderbolt 3 Dock (40AC) to get it work together with my X1 Yoga Gen2 (20JE). It works nicely in the first months. Lenovo sends me a second dock, nothing changed. Today Lenovo changed my mother board, nothing changed. I changed all cables and tried any hint from support forums and our internal IT department. So different windows installation binaries was tested and all drivers as well as BIOS are the newest versions. Perhaps someone here has an idea what that means if the device manager in Windows says that the device (Thunderbolt Controller 15D2) is not connected to the computer and it is hidden. The device is not hidden and connected, that includes also then the ThunderBolt Software shows all two ports, only during the installation of the driver software or the update tool. That is really crazy. I think this is the main issue. Please check the attached screenshot. Any hint would be helpful. Thank you.

Hi, I think I'm having some problem with my Yoga 920's thunderbolt port. I bought a StarTech thunderbolt 3 dock. When I first time plug in the dock, everything works fine the thunderbolt software pops up and ask me the authorized the new dock. And I click always trust this device. Then the windows crushed with a blue screen and a QR code on it. After 920 restarted, and I tried the dock again, it was identified as USB 3.1 hub but no USB connection. And when I tried to open the thunderbolt software, it shows me the following warning.I tried to update the driver, but the installer said it was all ready. And then I downloaded HWINFO64 to check, I could not find the thunderbolt 3 controller under the PCI-Express X4 BUS. Is that means my thunderbolt 3 port is broken? What should I do with this? Btw, when I plug in the thunderbolt 3 dock, the powersupply is also connected, and the dock also provide the power, two power supply input at the same time, will that be a reason of the crash which also burn the thunderbolt 3 controller?

I'm using the thunderbolt port for a single connection to a Dell usb-c dock (power in, KVM out, speakers, network, etc.).  The 720 charges real slow and the battery status message (in Lenovo Settings app) states that the "AC adapter cannot provide enough power for normal operation of your computer".  The Dell usb-c docks are powered with a 180w power supply that provides 60w of power to the computer, which is more than the 45w power supply that comes with the 720.  I have tried 3 different Dell docks, including a Dell thunderbolt 3 dock with a 240w power supply. I have to believe this is an issue with the Thunderbolt 3 driver on the 720 or something BIOS related.  BTW, the 720 has Windows 10 pro loaded (updated from the home version loaded by default) and Bitlocker enabled.  Don't think these changes have anything to do with the issue. I purchased Lenovo's thinkpad usb-c dock (which states that it's universal) and hope it charges the 720.

I'm having issues getting the TB16 to work with the XPS 15 9550. I successfully installed all the drivers in the proper order as documented prior to plugging in the TB16 for the first time.

I've verified that I indeed do have a Thundrerbolt port - there is a Thunderbolt symbol next to the USB-C port.
When I do plug in the TB16 the power button on it will power the system off/on.
I've used a usb-c to Displayport adapter and a usb-c to usb 3.0 adapter with a flash drive. Both worked successfully so the basic functionality of the usb-c port is working.

When I plug in the TB16 I never got an authentication window pop-up. In the Thunderbolt software it shows no attached devices.

The details setting in the Thunderbolt software looks fine, it appears to have the proper driver and firmware levels.

When I check the Thunderbolt driver it says that 'the hardware device is not connected to the computer'.
I'm at a loss - everything looks good except for the fact that nothing happens when I plugin the TB16. I'm wondering if there's a hardware problem with the Thunderbolt controller itself? I'd appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

You might open the Thunderbolt software and set it to allow all devices.  I reset my system and redid the TB16 and it shows the cable and dock as approved devices.
It was not hard for me.  The thunderbolt controller is on the computer.  You show some correct info for that controller, although since I have a 9365, that specific info may be different, but you do show a different controller generation..

As the title suggests, is it possible I can charge my Acer VN7-592G through its Thunderbolt port? As far as I know, Thunderbolt 3 allows a maximum power input of 100 watts, whereas the charging adapter for the respective device inputs 135 watts. Nevertheless, is it still possible to charge the laptop through the Thunderbolt 3 port using a high powered USB power bank? I recently purchased this laptop and discovered a dirty little secret Acer included was that once the battery reaches 41% the CPU throttles itself to 0.78 mHz which makes the system very unstable. (Bear in mind, battery saver was off, and CPU was set to High Performance, and 100% max load). I realize the charging process will be very slow, but will the device still charge? I need to know this ASAP because if it doesn't, and the CPU throttling issue still occurs, I will sell the notebook on Kijji, and purchase the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 that has a larger battery, same processor, and doesn't undervolt the CPU when you have 41% battery still remaining. Being charged $1,400 for a laptop that throttles its CPU down to the speed of a primitive Pentium 3 when the battery has sufficient charge is a total rip off.

I tried with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.04, the port no longer works with any operating systems.

I just bought a new Sandisk Ultra USB Type-C Drive 64GB which is intended to be used with Type-C devices and Android phones.  It is recognized in my Android phone but it is not recognized in my P50 workstation. Am I doing something incorrectly or is this port not intended to be used as a data port?

Hello there, I recently bought the Yoga 920 and tried to connect the HP Omen Accelerator for use as an eGPU. However, something seems to be wrong with the thunderbolt connection. When I connect the accelerator, the device connects for a split second (typical USB connection sound) and then immediately disconnects again (typical USB disconnecting sound). I tried different setups for the eGPU, I tried every possible driver I could find, I tried a different Thunderbolt cable and I followed every step on the Omen Website, nothing changed. Now, after looking at the Thunderbolt Controller Driver it tells me that the Controller-Driver-Version as well as the Networking-Driver-Version are unknown. I suspect, that there is something wrong with the thunderbolt driver/fírmware. Could it be that somehow the drivers aren't recognized? Any ideas as to where I could continue from here? Any advice is appreciated! RegardsMrKnowNothing Edit: To anyone who has the same problem. Sometimes the easiest solutions are the best. Two things could'Ve been the problem: 1. My antivirus blocking something. I uninstalled it and installed a different one, while I was working on the Omen problem, can't verify if that was the reason though. 2. I had the Thunderbolt Programm Window open when I connected the device. Not sure if I had tried that before, but it worked. So, it was probably either the antivirus or the thunderbolt software not being open before connecting.... Read more
