It sounds like you have the Alpine Ridge rev 2.0 card, which has no firmware update at this stage.
I’m pretty sure it’s Rev 1.0... was trying to get hold of 2.0 but finally gave up... it has firmware 20 and firmware 21 is available on Gigabyte’s webpage... it’s just that I can’t get the installer to work... (maybe because I’m a retard when it comes to doing things in Windows)It sounds like you have the Alpine Ridge rev 2.0 card, which has no firmware update at this stage.
I had the 16.3.x.x drivers. it's still not working... What is supposed to happen? I run the setup from Gigabyte's webpage, then it seems it's only installing the FlashTBT app that I have to manually find and start myself and from that I get the generation_mismatch error message...Got an GigabyteAlpineRidge TB card rev.1 here, too. I was only able to upgrade firmware to NVM21 when installing Thunderbolt Drivers version 16.3.x.x - had latest drivers 17.1.x.x first installed..
DOH! I think you were right all along! I was so sure it was 1.0 as that's what it said on the shop's webpage. I saw no indication on the card itself but on the box it actually says rev.2.0... So that's the firmware flash mystery resolved...It sounds like you have the Alpine Ridge rev 2.0 card, which has no firmware update at this stage.
Did you update the BIOS to the latest?Guys I got the Gigabyte Alpine Ridge V2 Thunderbolt addon card. But it does not work on my MSI Tomahawk X299 AC motherboard. I specifically checked and there was a TB header on the motherboard and the connector wire plugged into it perfectly. But it doesn’t get detected in even in BIOS. BTW there is no setting related to Thunderbolt in BIOS.
Has anyone got this GC-Alpine Ridge to work in MSI motherhood?
MSI doesn't make there own card (they have a product page for the "MSI Thunderbolt M3" but I don't think they made any) and I don't think they'll support other manufacturer's add-in cards but that doesn't mean they can't work.Just got an email from MSI support and the idiots don't support Thunderbolt AIC cards on their motherboards even though they advertise it on their site. There is no option in BIOS to enable thunderbolt support so that's that.
