P340 30DH Thunderbolt

2020-12-21, 16:02 PM

Hi,

I need to add Thunderbolt 3 to one of these workstations and the spec sheet seems to suggest it is possible.  We ordered the PCIe card kit but the internal GPIO cable for the motherboard side is a different connector than what we need.  The motherboard connector labeled Thunderbolt is 12 pin and the GPIO cable is 5 pin.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

I have the same problem. I contacted Lenovo support and they told me to get the ThinkStation Rear Thunderbolt PCIe Riser card  4XH0Y77510 but I ran into the same problem. I then got a Gigabyte Alpine Ridge Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Card because the picture of the cable showed two types of plugs (one had two rows) but it didn't work either.

I then found this document AVID Lenovo P340 Config guide where they state that there is a LENOVO Thunderbolt 3 adapter card (Titan Ridge) compatible with the P340 but it is not shipping yet. The document is dated October 21, 2020.

I guess we just have to wait.

Sergio

I'll double check on this after the holidays, but I think the GPIO cable did change.  I believe there is a new option part coming to support P340, so I'll see if I can get more information on that.

Will it be a new card or just a new cable? Thanks, Sergio

Sorry this slipped off my radar.  There was a recent update to the Options list, but I did not see a new option kit drop for P340 Thunderbolt just yet.  I've reached out to that team to find out more details about what the plan is.  I'll post back here when I get an update.  Hopefully it won't be too long as everybody should now be back from the holidays.  Thanks for your patience with this while we chase down some info.

Feedback from our options team is that they did not pick up an option kit for Thunderbolt for P340.  So the next path would be to try to get the card/cables via FRUs.  FRU SC50W47538 is the currently supported FRU for P340 Tower (you mentioned you have a 30DH).  That FRU will come with the card, the internal GPIO cable, and the DP loopback cable.

Hi,

Now two compatible Thunderbolt parts appear for my computer:

Thunderbolt LP Native 5C50W00871

Thunderbolt HP Native 5C50W00870

Do you know what is the difference between these two parts? What does LP and HP mean? There are no pictures for these.

I can't find any place to buy them. I tried Lenovo.com and Encompass, but they weren't listed.

Thanks,

Sergio
