Facing customers claims over 2x4K monitors tb16 failures, and 12mbps only eGPU traffic with no internal display capacity, Dell answered officialy the VERY VERY UNFORTUNATE misdesign issue of x2 lanes wired on x4 AlpineRidge !
see http://www.dell.com/support/article/en/en/frdhs1/QNA44089/thunderbolt-3-data-transfer-speeds-up-to-40gbps?lang=EN ... posted 27,Feb! And the funny 2x [email protected] 30fps !!! 2.000$ + 500$ + 2x 1250$ to get only 30fps ... is'nt it beautifull ? Customer legitime claims are answered that it's normal, even while purchasing site previously said "data" (so without DP or hdmi traffic) transfert to 40Gbps ! Now, as Dell usually does, no more mention of that data traffic, but new PCIE x2 lane port ' correction since mid-february. "Early XPS adopters" untill today are very pleased to get for 2000 bucks that modern f#@!*ng device! thanks you DeLL, for ever !! PS: TDP difference between x2lane-only low power chip (that is NOT the chip on MB which is the FULL x4lane one) and normal TB3 chip is under 0.5W, banning us of running GTX970+ (1050ti incl) to play at home with these "smart" laptop. Note that 2-in-1, with very low CPU not gaming candidate, is x4 lane. Very good job, DeLL !
