Re: Thinkpad T700 i7-10710 private project

What's the latest update on this project? Is it still on-going? Edit: sad that this project has ended Sorry I might need to clarify here for everyone. The project is not completely canceled -- but based on what I've been informed it'll be very unlikely for them to ship the T700 boards within 2021 d...

Re: Thinkpad T700 i7-10710 private project

Only SATA 3 is supported in the ultrabay port -- meaning that either a CD ROM or an additional disk drive should be supported. Battery and other Ultrabay products will not be supported unfortunately. UPDATE: Due to reasons including the COVID-19 recent outbreak in Guangzhou and the shortage of chips...

Yes they're still available. Please PM for the price. The amount of modding should be the same as the instructions of installing T70 (4C8T KBL).

Re: Thinkpad T700 i7-10710 private project

Whats the status of Ultrabay and dock support? Should we expect to see Ultrabay drive support, Ultrabay battery support, or dock support? Of the 3, I feel the Ultrabay battery should be doable if nothing else. I know Lenovo has a history of locking down custom docking and Ultrabay things, so I don'...

AFAIK the board can only boot to bios as for now; the factory is busy updating the bios and ec and diagnosing the board to reach a working state. I'll update this information once they're confirmed to boot to os.

How many boards are still available? Im still on the fence. Also, can you confirm that the Thunderbolt 4 ports support PCI Express? If so, how many lanes? Boards are still available for purchase. Thunderbolt 4 basically equals fully functional USB3.1 10g typec plus 2x/ 4x PCIe. It will be 4x on T700.
