Not sure if my 2013 ASUS G750MJ has a Thunderbolt1 port
Wondering to maybe buy an Akitio Node...
Model: ROG G750MJ specs at:
- In the specs it is pointed as 'optional'.
- It have the option to enable or disable Thunderbolt in bios.
- I just installed the Thunderbolt drivers from Intel with no problem.
But since I dont have any Thunderbolt hardware I cant test it.
Can't be 100% sure, but if the stock bios allows you to enable/disable Thunderbolt then it may mean there is a Thunderbolt controller in the system. Worth browsing the PCIe ports using hwinfo64 to see if a Thunderbolt controller appears when enabled. I've also seen some systems where the Thunderbolt controller only appears if there is a Thunderbolt device attached.
To be 100% sure, consider attaching a Thunderbolt device to see if it's detected, providing model/serial details to ASUS to check, or inspect the systemboard for a Thunderbolt controller.
Agree with you about bios... Tried hwinfo64 but Thunderbolt won't show up.
I will try contact ASUS and try to find a Thunderbolt hardware to check as well.
But Thunderbolt would be the last option on my list as eGPU nodes are expensive!
