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

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