Oh man, good to know... and good to see that the Akitio team is on it, and I love their humbleness 😉

I can confirm this on mine too! MSI GS63VR Skylake 6700HQ

Akitio team, are you trying NVM16 vs NVM23?

What's about the AKiTiO Thunder3? Any reason to suspect the same problem?

When I try to research this issue the only results that I get come back to this forum. I keep checking this and Akitio's Twitter every hour waiting for a solution. Until then, my Node and GTX 1080 sit on the floor unused 🙁

Nando4, how did you come to the conclusion that it's an Intel FW issue? Just trying to learn from you lol

The vendor advised they've made progress in recouping some of the missing H2D bandwidth by way of a different enclosure Intel FW.  Now they'll engage Intel with the aim to recoup all the missing H2D bandwidth. This thread being referenced for the problem at hand.

   Same for me - waiting for updates and bombarding ASUS with phone calls asking for NVM update of laptop's TB3.

Is it possible to fix issue without updated firmware on laptop?

We're not sure yet. It will likely require a FW update from either Intel or Akitio. Most likely it will be an Intel FW update as several companies (not just Akitio) that are being effected.

Would this issue impact non gaming applications like After effects or Davinci resolve?
