Is this just Lenovo? If so, kinda misleading title. Did all the other vendors already fix this issue except Lenovo? Is this an Intel issue or Lenovo issue?

The reddit post is called "Thunderbolt 3 Issue on *80 ThinkPads: Potential failure reason discovered." our title is a bit off.

that notebookcheck article is a bit weird as well.

but the main take away is -

"Lenovo remains quiet about the reason for the failures, but the list of affected ThinkPad laptops leaves only one logical explanation: Only ThinkPads with Thunderbolt Controllers are affected, so the Intel Thunderbolt Controllers seem to the cause of these issues."

firmware has been issued to prevent, but there's no fix aside from new board if you've fallen victim.

IE: the ports are nuking themselves.

Apparently this not only affects Lenovo, but can be any other manufacturer.
Haven't noticed any issues with our Dell laptops. I stopped using Lenovo since they release bios updates that brick their boards too often.

I ran into the issue with the Lenovo TS140. There are other reports of other models also with similar issues.

Apesbrain,

      Confirmed with our BIOS team,CKA version BIOS has no function issue and  the machine can work with this version except that you cann't downgrade or upgrade other BIOS version. Thanks!

Every vendor seems to have BIOSes that brick their systems, had a Dell last year that support said we had to install the new BIOS to fix an issue and it bricked the board so they had to send us a new board lol.

Dell thunderbolt docks for these latitude 5500 series we have are meh and they keep sending us power adapters that aren't the right rating with them which is bizarre. I'd rather go back to the old school slap the laptop on top style docks. I'm not a fan of HP's new slide in from the side ones either.

it comes and goes. Every vendor goes thru rough patches.

the one benefit of the migration to mostly TB docks is they make great mug warmers. specially the new TB2 series from HP.

The thunderbolt 3 ports on my old 2017 13" MacBook Pro never had this issue and I've had it for well over two years now.
