Your G7 does have thunderbolt 3.

I built a max spec G7 as well but all of them have tb3 automatically.

Out of curiosity how is your lappy handling heat?

Stock settings it gets pretty hot and loud, especially if flat on a desk/thing. But I've played around with some Throttlestop undervolting after watching this video and some others, and it actually fares pretty acceptably for what it is IMO, idling in the low-30s and jumping up into the 70s at most . https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=Vq9ACOFApr4

Most of the latency over USB comes from the protocol overheads.

Thunderbolt is basically just an implementation of PCI-E, which has much lower overheads, and DMA access.

And USB 4.0 seems to just be a rebrand of Thunderbolt 3.

The port just has the ability to switch back to the 'regular' USB protocol, rather than the PCI-E based protocol.

Anyway, Intel were supposed to have released the protocol a few months ago. I wonder why they didn't? To screw with the timing of AMD being able to implement it in Zen v2 chipsets?

I've made sure it's on every motherboard I've purchased since TB2 became a thing. It's amazing for external SSD's and single cable connectivity to my display (USB+DisplayPort). The latter lets my monitor's input selector switch function as a KVM switch.

I'm in the process of doing exactly this with an Asrock ITX board as well.

Wasnt Thunderbolt 3 simply running over a normal USB 3.1 gen 2 USB-C port only using 4 of the lanes instead of 1-2 lanes? It would seem to me that any latency improvements TB3 has would also be present in newer USB that we already have.
