For the Zbook G3 series, is HP going to support external GPU enclosures via Thunderbolt 3? I believe it requires support at the firmware (UEFI) level along with driver support for maximum compatibility.

Thanks, that is good information to know as the external GPU market matures. I don't see anything in SoftPaq yet, it is showing 18.104.22.1685 as the latest. The change log is interesting, which is from Intel's website (I think I have the right one based upon the version number).
The current UEFI gives GPU options for Auto, integrated GPU, and discrete GPU. Will HP modify the UEFI options change to show external GPU to allow for pre-OS support / usage and turn on the monitors?
I am assuming external GPUs will work best on the other Thunderbolt 3 port instead of going though the dock, perhaps you have information on that?
