    Hi, if I recall correctly the bottom part of that...

    Hi, if I recall correctly the bottom part of that popup lists something once you have an actual TB3 device plugged in.

    Yeah it's frustrating as hell. I have the 502VM with the XG Station 2, but after finding out that it's the JHL6420 controller, I gave up on buying a video card for it, for now.
    I even contacted the...

    Here is the screen shot. You can see that all the devices are marked as hidden which means no TB device is connected, and you can see both bridges there but only one controller. So I really don't...
  4. Yeah I thought that that might be it, but even...

    Yeah I thought that that might be it, but even with the XG Station 2 unplugged I can still see it. I'll make sure to post some screenshots later on.

    Gaaah, this is so frustrating. How can you say that if the PCI devices that I have in my GL502VM are:

    DSL6540 Thunderbolt 3 Bridge [Alpine Ridge 4C 2015] 1578 ...

    Yup, that is excatly what I ment. The Thunderbolt(TM) Controller is the PCI NHI device not the Bridge.

    U2Desire, I know what you mean, but I think you are mistaken. The https://vendev.org/pci/ven_8086&dev_1576/ is just the PCI bridge. The NHI is the actual controller device. For example in my GL50VM I...

    Hate to burst your bubble but that's just the PCI bridge that all alpine ridge chips have. You will also see a DSL6340 USB controller once you have something plugged in. The problem is with the...

    Hi,

    I bought the XG Station 2 and I was really excited to be able to use an external GPU, but my heart sunk when it turned out that the TB3 port on the *02VM is the 20GB one (just as link626...

    Yeah, it's one thing with the GL502VM model, where it wasn't really marketed as having thunderbolt, yet it does.
    But going out and having a splash page with for the 702VM where they claim it has...

    Oh WOW.... That's a big disappointment.
    I just got my XG Station last week... I have the Skylake GL502VM. I haven't had a chance to try it out with a graphics card tho.
    I can't believe they...

    I am not sure, the box or manual didn't say anything about a quadro GPU, it only stated that it's compatible with the GTX 900 and 1000 series.
    I guess it would be wise to ask tech support, but then...

    Yes it is because I have the older Skylake GL502VM with the i7-6700HQ

    GL502VM + XG Station 2 is a GO!

    My XG Station 2 arrived today. Wasn't ready for it to be here this early so I don't have a video card yet, but I plugged it in anyway.
    The thunderbolt app detected it straight away and I really...

    I think that's normal, as a safeguard against constant charging and discharging of the battery when the laptop is ON.
    I think if you were to turn off the laptop it would charge to 100%.

    Hey thanks for the tip!
    I actually tried the update on my GL502VM and it worked as well.
    For me it actually opened the Thunderbolt software on it's own as it was updating and I could see the...

    Could you please check if you can see the thunderbolt settings in your BIOS, like in this thread:...

    Yeah I can see it in my BIOS, ASUS has driver downloads for it, and the thunderbolt 3 app installs and works. The only thing short of a 100% confirmation is buying something that plugs into it.

    That is so weird that we were told different things by ASUS Suppport :).
    One thing that keeps my hopes up is that the laptop came with some bloatware and one of the apps was a Thunderbolt 3 App (see...

    Based on the GL502VM that I have:

    1. Does it support the VT-D for virtual machines? (I will often use it with vmware) Can it be enabled in BIOS?

    YES

    2. Does it have the support for Nvidia...
