Razer Blade 15 (2020 Base Model) thunderbolt connected to dGPU?

Hello.

I am thinking of buying a thunderbolt 3 docking station for my Razer Blade 15 (2020 Base Model) (RTX 2060) and am wondering if a thunderbolt dock will connect directly to my dGPU instead of the integrated GPU.

I would like to get an external monitor and eventually another to have dual monitors hooked up via the thunderbolt dock. Although from what I have read online, I seem to get mixed messages with some saying the Blade 15's TB3 port won't directly connect to the dGPU (RTX 2060), rather it connects to the integrated GPU provided by intel. Also that the only way to directly connect your dGPU to run games on an external monitor would be to utilize the DisplayPort or HDMI ports. Which kind of defeats the purpose of trying to set up a one cable docking station to the Blade. Can anyone verify this? It is very difficult to find a straight answer on the topic.

If it doesn't connect directly, why?

Thanks.

The potential monitors will be 1440p @ 144hz and I just want to make sure I can have a one cable solution and utilize the dGPU.

Did you ever find out if it works?
