There isn't a board that I've seen and it can't be added.

Intel is super strict (though I'm not sure if that's changed with the whole openness thing) and it requires the TB 3 controller to be on the board and lots of certification.

My goal is to build a thin-ITX system with an eGPU. TB3 would be the easy way to do this, but are there alternative connectivity options?

The manual for the H110T (which should be identical) says the M.2 is 20Gb/s which means it is PCIe 2.0 x4.

PCIe 2.0 x4 still isn't that big of a bottleneck, but it's uncertain if a GPU will work through it without trying.
