    anyone with a GL702 check the controller version?

    is it also 15bf ?

    I see asus isn't the only one using this gimp controller. Lenovo uses 15BF too for the Thinkpad

    sad

    I confirm GL702vm does also have JHL6240. Isn't it a scam from ASUS? How can they mark this laptop in XG station 2 comptability list?

    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 Asus support center about replacing the controller and I got informed that that is not an option... and I think that's the least they could do, cause I think they are getting a lot of bad rep from this situation.
    The splash page for the laptop has fine print about different SKUs having different controllers, but I've yet to see a 502/702VM with a proper TB3 controller.

    The sad thing is that the price difference is literally only a few bucks between the LP and SP controllers.
