ASUS ThunderboltEX 3 Card, integrates Thunderbolt 3, reversible USB 3.1 Type-C and DisplayPort 1.2, PCI Express 3.0 x4 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but needs more documentation Installation on a Maximus VIII Ranger was easy. Initially the PC didn't recognize the card and it had no functionality. I went into the BIOS which Windows 10 keeps carefully hidden, and found that Thunderbolt was disabled by default, and after enabling it the card works. No mention of this in the instructions! Also it is not clear if I actually need the display port connection. My graphics card doesn't have one, so I used the on board display port connection. I intend using the card for rapid backups of large files, e.g photo collections, so if I don't need the display port connection that too could be made clear in the instructions. I tried registering the product on the ASUS website and haven't yet found the catagory to which it belongs on their drop down menus. So. great product but better documentation would be useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. In my quest for ever diminishing input and output latency in music studio recording and the holy grail of real-time direct monitoring from the digital audio workstation software I recently built an Asus Z290/Intel Kabylake.... PC running the latest version of Cubase; 9. The interface consisted of a Focusrite Clarett 8 Pre thunderbolt interface. The ASUS thunderbolt card was easy to install and worked really well with the Clarett 8 pre. Focusrite are still hard at work creating the Thunderbolt 3 drivers for W10 so the fact that the card was backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 2 (and1) was crucial. My studio is now effectively latency free and my quest is over. When the W10 Thunderbolt 3 drivers from Focusrite become available I'm worried that if the latency goes down even more (which it definitely will) I'll start hearing the notes before I've played them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thunderbolt on Windows 10 Can`t fault this card worked fisrt time installed on Asus Rampage V Extreme connected to Motu 1248 Audio Interface. Did have to use Startech Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter but then the 1248 is Thunderblot 2 so not surprising. The speed increase is superb. Using usb I did get some latency problems but they have all gone now Using DP 9.0 as my Daw. Brilliant piece of kit

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work! I purchased this item and after installing the card per the instructions have yet to get it working. I have all the prerequisite hardware (X-99 deluxe) but it seems that even Asus's own tech team dont know how to get the card working. very dissapointed with the overall purchase. This is not the fault of, but that of ASUS and their terrible customer support team.

Hello, This would not be compatible with the Zenith X399 as the board requires an internal Thunderbolt header to support this device. Regards,

Would this be compatible with an Apple Thunderbolt display?
