Has anyone had success connecting an Akitio node thunderbolt 3 to a Clevo P870dm-g? I tried to connect today but was told by windows that the speed needed to be improved on that USB device. I have 16.3.x.x. thunderbolt drivers so I don't think they're too old. Anyone able to help?

The "USB speed needed to be improved" message is a clear sign the Thunderbolt 3 firmware on your computer is not up-to-date.

I hear you, but my firmware is even more recent than what my reseller just sent me last week when I asked them for the newest.....wondering if it could be a BIOS issue? I'm not using any modified BIOS of any sort - is that a prerequisite ?
