    For which variant of Helios 500 you are asking about, the AMD or the Intel/Nvdia?
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    From what is shared by other users there are x4 lanes assigned to the thunderbolt, but I am not sure whether the 2 thunderbolts have x4 lanes or the xr lanes are shared between the two. Maybe a Helios 500 user can clarify that.

    Maybe take you PC with you to a store and check it yourself until an informed member informs you here. That way, you won't end up making a loss after buying it.
