ALERT: half H2D performance issue on TI83 TB3 enclosures (Node, Venus, Devil Box, XG Station 2)
Since After Effects uses GPU acceleration and CUDA cores - I think answer would be yes.

Update March 29, 2017:
Intel has responded to us with a beta firmware. We're currently running tests for stability and seeing if it comes with any other issues. Intel has also reached out to the other companies as well (according to them).

What's about the AKiTiO Thunder3? Any reason to suspect the same problem?
I don't have full 4-lane Thunder3 CUDA-Z results, but the 2-lane TB3 (16Gbps) XPS 9350 showed higher H2D numbers at https://egpu.io/nvidia-optimus-dell-xps-13-akitio-thunder3-gtx-980/ which suggests it isn't affected. The Thunder3 is also TI82-based like the unaffected Razer Core and Devil Box shown on the opening post.

This alert has been upgraded to cover ALL TI83-based TB3 enclosures in the buyer's guide, as they have been tested and found to be deliver half the critical host-to-device (H2D) bandwidth of their Intel TB3 specification of 22Gbps. Affected are:
