Closest info I could find suggests the G751JM (at least) has TB2

Surprised this info isn't easily findable. I contacted Asus via phone and after 30 minutes, the person came back and said they don't know.

Looks like the G751 series is still tied to the old TB1 chip. Seems weird since 4k output wants tb2

Where are you finding the info?

At 11:39 BIOS shows Thunderbolt host chip BDW-TBT-LP (WR)

So it's a Broadwell Thunderbolt LP Controller, but I can't really find specs regarding this specific chip being TB1 or TB2
