Not getting max line speed on HP omen accelerator

I have an HP Omen accelerator with a 1070GTX on an Lenovo Xtreme X1 laptop. My issues is that HWinfo shows that I have 5.0 GT line speed, but that the max is 8.0 GT. 

Can anyone tell me how to get the max speed, and does it affect my performance to have it at 5.0?

Any help will be highly appreciated!


To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Suggest ignore the hwinfo64 port details. Instead, test the bandwidth across the TB3 link using AIDA64 or CUDA-Z and compare against the reference in my signature.
