T470p and UltraDock USB3 ports operate as USB2

2017-08-14, 21:18 PM

I was trying to get my Logitech BRIO camera working on my T470p and UltraDock on Win10.

 

The camera is plugged into one of the blue USB3 ports on the UltraDock.

Windows told me camera is plugged into a USB2 device and can perform faster if plugged into USB3.

 

I investiaged using USBTreeView (http://www.uwe-sieber.de/), and all the supposedly USB3 plugs in the UltraDock is USB2, looks like all the plugs come of a USB3 hub.

 

How do I get USB3 ports operating as real USB3?

I got a brand new Ultra Dock.

On the new dock the hub is a USB 2.1 hub, still not USB 3, but beter than 2.0.

 

The manufacturing date on the old (USB2) dock is 16/10, the new one (USB2.1) is 17/05, so they changed something, but it is not USB3, and Windows 10 still complains that the USB3 devices can perform faster on a USB3 dock.
