Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB Type-C port, in the same way that Thunderbolt 1 and 2 used the Mini DisplayPort. Not every Mini DisplayPort or USB Type-C port is a Thunderbolt port, but some are.

I believe that Apple was first to use it, but as noted it's Intel. I've seen it on Lenovo machines.

Mr Wiki tends to indicate skylate + chipset controller in specs of..

 

 

Intel offers three versions of the controller:[55]

 

  • one "DP" version that uses a PCIe 3.0 ×4 link to provide two Thunderbolt 3 ports (DSL6540)
  • one "SP" version that uses a PCIe 3.0 ×4 link to provide one Thunderbolt 3 port (DSL6340)
  • an "LP" (Low Power) version that uses a PCIe 3.0 ×2 link to provide one Thunderbolt 3 port (JHL6240).

In my experience there will usually be an icon of a lightning bolt next to it.

It might have the thunderbolt logo next to the port, rather than the USB logo, otherwise you'd have to read the specs of the machine. Here's a page with some example photos - random choice from Google.
