Yoga 730 Thunderbolt lanes

I'm very confused by all the conflicting info surrounding this laptop. User reports and Lenovo schematics are all over the place. Can someone help me set the record straight?

 

What are the lane configurations for the below? Should I have any expectation of newer motherboards for Whiskey Lake? What would the extra 4 lanes even be used for?

 

13 inch

  • Kaby Lake-R CPU (i5-8250U, i7-8550U)
  • Whiskey Lake CPU (i5-8265U, i7-8565U)

15 inch

  • Kaby Lake-R CPU (i5-8250U, i7-8550U)
  • Whiskey Lake CPU (i5-8265U, i7-8565U)
  • Kaby Lake-R CPU (i5-8250U, i7-8550U) with GTX 1050
  • Whiskey Lake CPU (i5-8265U, i7-8565U) with GTX 1050 (customized build only)

Following up on this. Really only need clarity for the 15 inch offerings.

 

The Kaby Lake models are apparently 2 lanes. But what about Whiskey Lake?

Re: Yoga 730 Thunderbolt lanes

Also wondering the same thing.  I saw someone posted a screenshot on here in november I think with an egpu hooked up to the 15" 730 that showed 4 lanes, however in that same post a mod posted a schematic showing 2 lanes.  Do we have any further clarity on this?  Wondering because I just purchased a 730-15iwl.
