  • Gigabyte GC-Alpine Ridge owners with activated Thunderbolt Bus.
    • It contains a blue dot (do not modify the chip with the green dot)
      • (Note: Need someone with GC-Alpine Ridge to confirm this...)

There is only one chip (unlike the GB-Titan Ridge), which has a blue dot, shown in upper right corner of image in spoiler.

The jumper (J3-J5) is done the same as on the Titan Ridge:

Alpine Ridge - EX3 - Port 5 (0285)

Note: In regards to my card, let me know if this information doesn't help. Either way I'm playing along.

Needed to recorrect CRC32 after changed to 0285 for port 5. I just used the suggested correction in the log.
How to recorect CRC32?

I provided two versions of the firmware, with a xxx-1.bin and xxx-2.bin in the file name. Which one is this result from?

To be honest @Elias64Fr send me a different Version, which he did for his own Asus Laptop,
before you posted the 2 bin files but I can test them aswell tonight :)

Did a quick compare via Hex Fiend and all versions are different.

@S1lla

Nice to see that it work on your Laptop ;)

Have you made some performance test with the new thunderbolt set-up and eGPU ?
Which thunderbolt devices are you using ?

I believe you're good to go my friend.

You mean, my configuration it's ok, even if port 5 has no data on the right side?

Update: It was my mistake, man. SSDT stuff. Now my IOreg looks OK. If anybody need some test, I'm here.

Here is the firmware from my GC-Alpine Ridge AIC. Is there a patched firmware here somewhere that I can try, or does this one need to be patched?
Thanks.

Please post the one that works. I will compile all working/tested firmware files into a single post.
