X1 Carbon Gen6 with dock 40AJ0135US

Question regarding ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station (P/N 40AJ0135US):

If the docking station is used with a new ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6-th generation laptop (which uses 2 Thunderbolt port to connect to docking station), does the 2 USB-C ports on the docking station itself become Thunderbolt? According to the specs (https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/pd500173) they are not, but maybe I'm missing something here? It would be very disappointing losing Thunberbolt ports with most expensive docking station.

 

Moved topic to X series board and changed title  - mod

Have exactly the same question. Will that biggest and baddest docking station effectively strip me off TB3 ports?

Is that possible at all to connect eGPU while using that dock with x1c6?

It is not possible to connect eGPU. This dock station passes through only USB-C. Tested.

Had a copule freezes but performance wise no issues. It reaches well beyond i7-7700HQ. I have 5600/18000 result on geekbench (with minimal extra cooling)
