    Hi all.

    First of all, sorry for my english.

    How can we know if Thunderbolt 3 port of the aero 15x v8 is PCIe 4x lanes?

    Is this laptop full compatible with any Egpu like gigabyte aorus gaming box?

    I have this laptop, so if you know how to check this just tell me if you need any screenshot.

    Thank you!!

    Yes it's PCI-E 4x, because it's TB3 and yes it's compatible.

    Oh, thank you very much for that fast response.

    I really have some problems searching for this...

    Is there any way to check this? Do you have this laptop?

    Thank you!

    All thunderbolt ports are PCI-E 4x. The only difference is the volume they can put through. TB1 has 10GB/S, TB2 has 20GB/S and TB3 has 40GB/S.

    Just google about how thunderbolt ports are made if you're interested.

    Thanks for this, normally TB ports should have 4 PCI-E lanes, but seems people started even cheaping out on those now.

    Normally you should always assume 4PCI-E lanes, PCI-E 2x is rare, only lenovo yoga and dell XPS (older alienwares included) seem to have 2 lanes.

    Is there any way to know or check if we have 4 lanes?

    If you can find a service manual you'd be able to look it up there.
