Some comments:Looks like its the motherboard!
@CaseySJ do you have any recommendations on any other decent AMD motherboards? Getting a hold of another Vision D is really tricky now. All the shops appear to stock only the D-P variant.
I dont mind if it doenst have Thunderbolt to be honest. I was checking around and heard that some are having a very good experience with the Gigabyte Aorus X570 Master so maybe I will go with that.
I also saw that the ASRock X570 Taichi works well - @CaseySJ are there any known issues with that board?
Thanks for all your help!
- Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P
- We experienced Thunderbolt connection problems in macOS that we were unable to solve.
- On-board Intel i225-V 2.5GbE Ethernet port has connection problems in macOS that we were unable to solve.
- ASRock X570 Taichi
- Thunderbolt add-in-cards such as GC-Titan Ridge encounter all sorts of connection problems.
- ASRock's DSDT/SSDT (ACPI) is the most non-standard and convoluted mess that I've come across. I cannot recommend any of ASRock's AMD motherboards (their Intel boards might be fine; I have no direct experience with them however).
In the User Builds section, there is a guide for Gigabyte B550 AORUS Elite:

One could add a Thunderbolt AIC to that system even though the board lacks a Thunderbolt header. Alternatively, you may want to consider the Intel-based Gigabyte Z490 Vision G. The Vision G is fully supported in my "Z490 Vision D" thread and it works quite will with a Thunderbolt add-in-card. Vision G has a Thunderbolt header. Intel Z490 boards might become extremely difficult to find soon, but the Vision G is currently available.
