Mine came with a USB4 port and not the Thunderbolt 4 port. All 4 of them at Best Buy had USB4 and not the Thunderbolt 4. Mine is currently being 'fixed' at Dell as the Tech that tried to fix it over the internet said "strange it seems to have a USB4 chip in it, you'll have to send it to us." It didn't come with TB4 drivers or software and the error log from installing the drivers provided by Intel said No Compatible Controller error.

My Dell G15 5521 (the Dell G15 Special Edition 2022) includes Advanced Optimus. I'm not sure if this is unique to my configuration, but it might be worth noting. My configuration is: Intel Core i7 12700H Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 16GB DDR5 4800MHz 1TB SSD 1440P 240HZ display
