This is the closest to a real Mac the system has ever been! It blows my mind that the designare firmware works on this AIC. An interesting note, I can plug the HDMI monitor into any open TB3 port after I get to the desktop and it works. I cannot have it plugged in a TB3 port during boot. But I can leave the HDMI monitor plugged directly into the GPU. I wonder if the monitor limitation with this designare firmware is because the designare only has 1 DP-IN port? NOW I'd really like to have a 4K TB3 monitor!! I wonder if that would make a difference. I've been on the fence for so long about that.I think we got extra lucky that Designare Z390 shipped with NVM 33. This is so far the most Mac-friendly version of Titan Ridge!
You guys are truly amazing with this stuff. Please keep me in mind if you have versions you'd like to test out.
