Solved!

Does the HP OMEN 17-w249TX have a Thunderbolt 3 port? If not, can it be added to the notebook?

OMEN 17-w249TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Also, what ports does it have? If thunderbolt 3 port or USB 3.1 ports are not there, can I use some adapter which connects between USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 3/ USB 3.1 ports?

Hello, @Pheonix99 - Hope you are well :)
 

Welcome to the HP Forum! This is a wonderful location to converse with the community, get assistance and find tips!


Your HP Omen has USB 3.0 port and not 3.1 or the thunderbolt ports. Check from page 5 – 8 of your PC user guide here: http://hp.care/2n7zoAa
 

To answer your second question, I am not aware of any trusted manufacturers who helps you upgrade from USB 3.0 to 3.1 using adapters / converters. It is worth noting that all the USB 3.1 cables are backwards compatible with the USB 3.0. Hence you can connect all those devices to your 3.0 and use them.

 

I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!

Good luck :)
