    Can anyone verify? I know with the 2016 the right 2 tb3 ports had reduced bandwidth.

    Yes, the two ports on the right of the 2017 13" touch bar model have reduced bandwidth like the 2016 model.

    Thank you.

    So egpu should be on left side only. Anyone know if the razed core charges the mbp while connected ? I thought I read the node does not.

    Power Delivery from the Razer Core is 45W. However it has an older USB-C controller, TI82. macOS does not support this controller. The AKiTiO Node has 15W PD.

    You can read this eGPU buyer's guide and look for enclosure with 60W or more PD and TI83 USB-C controller.

    There's no right side ports on the non-Touchbar 13". The left ports are working the same way as Touchbar 13" MBP.

    It's ok on the ntb too. Basically the left side is what you want to use for egpus

    Anyone know how reduced the right side is? It says the right side still can do usb c 3.1 gen 2 so 10 gb/100 watts for charging.
