I am considering the Aorus GTX1070 gaming box for my 2017 MacBook Pro 13” with TB.

I note the same Mac in 2016 only had 2 of the 4 thunderbolt with 4 lanes which affects the speed of the e-GPU. Does my 2017 model have the same restrictions on thunderbolt as the 2016 model?

Any views of the Aorus and some FPS that games run at?

Regards

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts

Yes, only the left-side ports on the 13" MBP have full x4 performance. This is true on both the 2016 and 2017 models.
