I’m spending the next month in China and I’m thinking about buying a Teclast x5 pro. It seems to me a much better deal than a Cube Mix Plus (since I have the extra dollars to expend on the Teclast at the moment) because of the 8GB Ram.
But there’s one thing that still bugs me. I read a review on Cube Mix Plus on this very website (goo.gl/Gx5R59) that mentions Thunderbolt activation options on Bios.
Has anybody tried Thunderbolt over Teclast X5 Pro’s Usb-C? Is it a definitely no-no? Are there any Thunderbolt mentions on the device’s Bios?
Thank you very much.September 8, 2017 at 11:52 am #71791
Since nobody answered, I will by myself.
I finally bought the Teclast X5 Pro aaaand: yeah, in fact there are several mentions on Thunderbolt over USB-C on Bios. It doesn’t come activated by default, you have to do it on your own. Bios is accessed by spamming “Esc” on start.
There are also several mentions on external GPU usage over Thunderbolt, which are deactivated by default. You have to activate it, and when you do, the default is “AMD only” and you may change to “AMD and Geforce”.
I haven’t had the opportunity to test a Thunderbolt device, nor a External GPU over Thunderbolt. I’ve only heard it has been done on similar chinese tablets.
I’m updating the BIOS with the file provided by Tech Tablets tonight, and as soon as I have new tests done on Thunderbolt I’ll come here to share what I’ve got.September 15, 2017 at 7:43 am #72153haloParticipant

Hi, I still don’t have the eGPU adapter to test it.
I’ll probably test it over the next months.
I wanted to do the Bios + USB-C charging firmware updates before that, but i don’t seem to be able to :/
I’ll try reinstalling Windows10 to do the update. Anyway i’ll come with news as soon as I have it.March 20, 2018 at 5:52 am #140852Joaquin AquinoParticipant
