USB Type C ports are all USB Gen3/3.1 as far as I'm aware.

 

If you look at the port itself, USB 3 ports usually are blue whereas 2.0 and 1.1 ports are black.

 

If you open the Device Manager and click on "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" then it should tell you. As far as which ports correspond to those controllers, you'll have to look at the physical ports.

USB 3.1 is Gen3.1

I think you’re confused.

USB2.0 is 480Mbps

USB3.0 is 5Gbps with type A and B ports

USB3.1 Gen1 is 5Gbps with Type A, B, and C ports

USB3.1 Gen2 is 10Gbps with Type A, B, and C ports

 

So all Type C ports are USB3.1, but can be either Gen1 (5Gbps) or Gen2 (10Gbps).

 

From device manager, I don’t know if you can tell a difference except by looking up the actual chipset that it shows for the Root Port(s). On Type A ports, regular 5Gbps is blue while 10Gbps should be light blue. You can also look for markings near the ports like SuperSpeed (SS, 5Gbps) or SuperSpeed+ (SS+, 10Gbps)

Looking to buy GTX690, other multi-GPU cards, or single-slot graphics cards:

I was referring to USB revisions when I said "GenX", should've clarified.
