I can confirm that it works with Sierra and Gigabyte Z170X UD5 TH!!
Excellent- thanks! I'm definitely picking this up to test against the Startech version. Nice of Apple to drop the price from $49 to $29 until end of year.
Confirmed to also work with ThunderboltEX 3 expansion card.
DPCI Manager shows the 2 USB-C ports from the Mobo
It shows Cactus Ridge, must be the dongle?
Both devices running in chaining mode...
Mobo - Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter - Apple Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter - UAD2 Sat DUO - Focusrite Saffire 56
Full 800 Mb/sec to the UAD and from the UAD fullspeed to the Focusrite.
I just got it and wanted to try it tonight!!! Thanks for giving me a heads up!
Keep us posted
Amazing News! Are you able to check if thunderbolt devices are hot-swapable? Specifically, can you power devices on at anytime, or does it work like previous versions of thunderbolt where the device has to be powered on before booting?
Also, did you need Windows to "wake up" the thunderbolt port? Or did it just work out of the box with USB C and Sierra?
Many thanks. I'm glad this was working, as this is a crucial step for my next build.
As i dont have a thunderbolt device to test as of yet, i cannot confirm it. I did test with Firewire equipment outlined in the post above and those work. Those were not hot-swapable when i tested them, they needed to be turned on before starting up macOS. I did activate the Thunderbolt USB-C ports in Windows with the Gigabyte Firmware Update Utility in Windows first, so i wouldnt know if those ports work OOTB honestly.
