    There is no update for the models listed below (I looked today), so they may not need the firmware update, maybe someone can confirm this.
    ROG G752VM
    ROG G752VS OC Edition (7th Gen Intel Core)
    ROG G752VS


    Thunderbolt Firmware update for the following ------- G752VY, G752VT and G752VL

    There are two downloads under "XG Station 2", download both files, make sure you are in the support area for your laptop model ie G752VY, G752VT or G752VL etc. (See the support page for your laptop model, download the correct files, more details below).

    Install as follows.... for all G752 models VY, VT and VL.

    Step one

    Warning -- Download the correct BIOS file for your laptop before you flash it, always double check before you flash the BIOS, if in doubt, delete the file and start again.

    Make sure you have flashed the latest BIOS to your G752VL / VT / VY (See the support page for your laptop model and select BIOS and download the latest one and flashed it).

    Uninstall any Thunderbolt driver / software that you have on the G752xx and reboot.

    Install the new Thunderbolt Driver and reboot.

    Step two

    Please note the 'xx' in the model name .... ie G752VT (G752xx), make sure you download the correct Thunderbolt Firmware for your laptop as detailed below

    G752VL >> G752VL_TBT_FW_For_XG_Station2.zip
    G752VT >> G752VT_TBT_FW_For_XG_Station2.zip
    G752VY >> G752VY_TBT_FW_For_XG_Station2.zip


    The new Thunderbolt firmware is double packed in this file >> G752xx_TBT_FW_For_XG_Station2.zip. Unzip the file using WinZip or 7-ZIP.
    Find the file named >> Update_V1.0.1.0 G752xx.7z This file needs to be unpacked using WinZip or 7-ZIP.

    You will now have a folder called >> Update_V1.0.1.0 G752xx and inside that the same folder again (Update_V1.0.1.0 G752xx)
    eg, (x:\Asus G752\eSupport\ThunderBolt\G752xx_TBT_FW_For_XG_Sta tion2\G752xx_TBT_FW_For_XG_Station2\Update_V1.0.1. 0 G752xx\Update_V1.0.1.0 G752xx)

    Step three --- Flash the update

    Make sure that the Thunderbolt software is running, there should be a Thunderbolt icon in the right side of the start bar next to the clock (see picture below).
    Make sure that there is no device connected to the USB-C / Thunderbolt port on the laptop.
    Run the file Update.exe that's in the folder called 'Update_V1.0.1.0 G752xx' and click on Update.
    Wait for the update to complete, it can take up to 2 minutes.
    When done, shutdown the laptop (do not do a Restart)
    Pull the power lead and wait 10 - 20 seconds and plug the power lead back in and restart the laptop.
    Run the Thunderbolt software.
    Right click the Thunderbolt Icon on the right side of the Start Bar (task bar).
    Click on settings
    Click on Details
    You need to have the following as shown in the picture below. If for some reason you don't see NVM Firmware of 21.00 or PD Firmware of 1.07.06, do step three all over again.
    What about prototype folder»?

    To flash the prototype firmware, the procedure would be the same.

    The prototype firmware is an older update from what I can tell, the version number is lower (Prototype V1.0.0.10 g752vl vs Update_V1.0.1.0 G752VL), and I am not sure why it was added to the zip file.

    Cheerio!
    Is there any official information from ASUS on IF the XG Station 2 is going to be available in North America?

    According to this article, there are no plans to sell it in the US: http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/as...2-graphics-amp

    Based on what I have read in this brief (PDF), it would suggest that the USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 port on the G752 laptops operates upto 40Gbp/s.

    But, and here is the BUT .....

    ...... this all depends on how ASUS has hardwired the USB-C port and the controller(s) on the main board of these laptops.

    If only 2 lanes are used, this would restrict the laptops to 20Gbp/s, which is the same as Thunderbolt 2.
    I hope that this is not the case.

    I am trying to find a way to test this and to see if the port is in fact 40Gbp/s enabled.

    The test factor is limited at the moment, there seems to be a void in the way of Thunderbolt 3 devices that are within ones price range to carry out such tests.

    I have one option that's being tested, an update will follow if it's relevant.
    I think 4 lanes are used so 40Gbp/s should be OK. Providing the cable used is of proper quality.

    Can't update G752VL - process halts

    I followed all the instructions in this thread to no avail. :-(

    Once I start the "Update.exe" in the "Update_V1.0.1.0 G752VL" folder, it runs for a moment. I hear the standard Windows sound that happens when a device dismounts and then I get this error message.

    "Update error. Firmware update process is halted. (0x10430004)"

    Sometimes just before the message above I see a dialog displayed by the Thunderbolt driver that says...
    "Your PC may need updates for the Thunderbolt 3 port to function properly. For more information go to:
    https://thunderbolttechnology.net/updates"


    I posted more details in a new thread before I discovered this one.

    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...ROR-0x10430004

    As I noted there, I tried the normal 1.0.1.0 firmware a number of times with no success. I have NOT tried the "prototype" firmware version as I would rather have the latest official firmware. Their inclusion of "prototype" firmware is rather bizarre.


    ANY help would be appreciated. :-)

    Do I need a TB device to update the firmware?

    I saw this in the readme file of an Intel Thunderbolt Firmware update Tool.

    "Connect a Thunderbolt device to the Intel NUC. The firmware update tool will not run without a
    Thunderbolt device connected. "

    Is this same requirement necessary for the ASUS TB firmware updates?

    No, the firmware flash is different with the ASUS laptops.
