It doesn't do either 10-gig or Thunderbolt.

USB 3.1 Gen 1 is 5Gbps, USB 3.1 Gen 2 is 10Gbps. The laptop seems to have a USB 3.1 Gen 1 - port, not Gen 2.

Because the chipset doesn't support higher. The number of conductors only means that the connector itself, electrically, has enough conductors, nothing more. It does not mean the rest of the hardware can do it.

Most probably a normal 5Gbit USB 3.0 aka USB 3.1 Gen 1 aka USB 3.2 Gen 1 aka SuperSpeed USB port.
