@memadmax methinks you missed the purpose of this product entirely. me also thinks that you don't truly understand what an ULTRABOOK is... good luck out there, though and happy shopping :) lol

There seems to be some confusion here. Every reference I can find, especially the official standard site ( http://www.usb.org/developers/ssusb ) says USB 3.1 Gen 1 is 5 Gbps and USB 3.1 Gen 2 is 10 Gbps.

Thunderbolt 3 is another issue entirely as that requires an Alpine Ridge chip that seems a bit power and real estate heavy for a machine like this, especially if two full speed ports are being supplied. The LP (Low Power) version used in the MAcBook Air only gets two PCI 3.0 lane and so cannot operate at full Thunderbolt 3 speed.

What model are you reviewing here? I have a new HP Spectre X360, UHD, highest end model they made 4 weeks ago... the Type-C does not support 3.1 protocol, only 3.0. I cannot find the model on HP website that you are referencing here.
