Hello, I have an X1C 3. Gen. (Type 20BS, 20BT) with a Samsung 256 G, M.2, 2.280, PCIe 3×4, STD. Is it possible to replace this SSD by an Samsung 970 Evo Plus and getting all the speed advantages? Or does my notebook limit the speed bc of any certain interface?

Thunderbolt Firmware Detection Tool (1810r) – Download/Versions/output ?!



we are about to develop a strategy to deploy the Thunderbolt FW and Driver Update on about 1.500 Clients (All kind of supported models). To get started we need to find out current Driver and Firmware Version of Thunderbolt Devices. To do so, we want to use the detect1810 Tool which has been mentioned several times across the board by Lenovo Staff.


But I need some more informations about this tool:


– Is there an official Lenovo Download Link, I only found direct links on some kind of file hoster posted by Lenovo Staff members, but I need to make sure this tool is an official Lenovo Tool and has no malware etc…


– Is there a list which Modell is supported by which version and how many version are available ?  (I know there are at least two version, 1810 and 1810r )


– Is it possible to save output straight into Registry/WMI or do we have to script that by ourself ?


– Instead of using the tool, does anybode know a WMI Query to read the Firmware of the TB Controller ? I can get DriverVersion but not Firmware yet….


Thank you in advance
