Why are only W540 and W541 listed as the supported models? Are you saying it will work with X1 Carbon as well? What kind of devices can you use once that driver is installed?

I will publish it .....in the next few days..after an extensive test....with
Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Express-HD-Dock and elgato Thunderbolt Dock etc..but it will only run under Windows 8.1 and higher...on the Windows 10 build 10041....Intel Thunderbolt driver is on board...DirectX 12 etc.. !!!!... and the system runs 30 to 40 % faster on the X1 20A7..etc..
It is only a name change of the interface..just money making....like everywhere....I guess that it has something to do with patent rights...probably it's taxes payment to Intel patents....and nothing more...all hardware requirements are present here..on different models like Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon 20A7 etc...
it will be just the Intel Thunderbolt drivers required and mod in the bios !

We look forward to the results of your testing. Interesting news for those who might want to connect Thunderbolt devices!
Can we keep the discussion about this in one thread please, so that it's easier to follow along?

Hi, how did it go, did you get Thunderbolt to work?
(As a historical reference, back in ~2008 the initial X61 Tablet specs said it had an Expressport, but it turned out to be a typo - I would love to get your confirmation that in this case, the news that the X1 Carbon 2015 would have Thunderbolt is real -
This would be a key feature of the laptop. Thunderbolt is the best!! Official request to Lenovo to add and maintain Thunderbolt support in the X1 Carbon series.)
