“Thunderbolt 3” is really a family of controllers. Some are based on Alpine Ridge, others are based on Titan Ridge. There could be some other ridges in there as well. And within Alpine Ridge, there are siblings; jhl6240, jhl6340, jhl6540.i'm a producer. I have Apollo Twin X.
Ever since Maple Ridge TB4 was released, there were incompatibilities with hot plugging certain Alpine Ridge devices, particularly those with jhl6240. I know because I have a Thunderbolt 3 10 Gbps NIC (jhl6240) that doesn’t work properly with Maple Ridge. That is, if it is connected to the PC prior to booting, it will work. But if the PC goes to sleep or if I disconnect and reconnect, the device never reconnects until I cold boot. This doesn’t happen with devices based on jhl6340 or Ttitan Ridge. Just j6240 gives me problems. Intel never fixed it.
If your Twin X is using jhl6240 then that could be why you’re having issues.
