Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 - Thunderbolt PCIe?

2019-07-17, 18:43 PM

Hello everyone,

 

I own a Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 and would need to update it with a Thunderbolt port. I'm doing music production and need to upgrade my audio interface to a Thunderbolt one.

 

I've done some research and it seems that not all motherboards are able to support Thunderbolt cards. Unfortunately I cannot find information on the TS140 and can't figure out if it will support it or not.

 

Here is the PCIe card I would like to add: https://smile.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Alpine-Thunderbolt-Components-GC-Alpine/dp/B0722SV69N/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

 

Could someone tell me if this will work?


Thanks!
A

Hi AntoineA,

 

According to the GC-ALPINE RIDGE website, the card only works on GIGABYTE Thunderbolt™ ready motherboards. Not only a dedicated PCIe slot is required, but also bios support. 

TS140 does not support the card.
