Hi whiskeyy! Welcome to Community Forums.


I've checked the specifications of Thinkpad E590, sadly it only has USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 with the speed of 10 Gbps. To achieve 40Gbps speed, a machine should have USB-C Thunderbolt 3. You may check the product specifications on this link https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20E590/ThinkPad_E590_Platform_Specifications.pdf. Hope it helps!
