New Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 (2022) no Thunderbolt Controller?
- System: Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 (2022)
- Battery or AC: Both
- Model: G733Zw-DS94
Just received the new Strix Scar 17 gaming laptop, and loving it so far, but I'm confused on one aspect. I have a Thunderbolt 4 docking station, and on the technical specs for this laptop, it states it has a Thunderbolt 4 port, which led to the belief it had a Thunderbolt 4 controller.
However, there doesn't appear to be an actual Thunderbolt 4 controller on this laptop. When I connect the Thunderbolt 4 dock to the Thunderbolt 4 port, it connects as a "USB4" hub device. It works wonderfully since I do appear to be getting 20 Gbps+, but it seems odd that there isn't an actual Thunderbolt 4 controller, but that instead, Thunderbolt 4 devices are "supported" by being handled as USB4 devices.
There's also no Thunderbolt driver or software on the Asus support site for this model.
Not sure if anyone has any experience with this or if there is something I'm missing?
