Hey! I have a Thunderbolt question for the X299 folks. Using the KGP guide with a GC Titan Ridge, I have full hot swap with my UAD Apollo and things run smoothly.
I don't, however, have the Thunderbolt Bus showing up because I never flashed my firmware. Would I stand to benefit from flashing?
I read something on the CaseySJ thread that it would potentially increase my ability to run at lower latencies and who knows what else. But that's also targeted at Z390 and also folks who had trouble running the devices in the first place.
I would love any insight into this!
Thank you in advance.
Let me some time : I have EVGA X299 FTWK -Eatx ( not exactly the same as yours) : I'm still with Mojave on it : these last days i have focused my attention on Asus and Gigabyte, so now i'm successful i will go to the EVGA
As you read on CaseySJ thread now with the new Z490 but also on the original thread Z390, the benefit from flashing are :
- Full AppleThunderboltHAL tree
- Compatibility on a Thunderbolt connected device as on a real Mac
- Networking over Thunderbolt
The procedures are linked here on post #3
Aloha all. I posted this inquiry on another thread but wanted to also ask for assistance here as I well. I will be using the x299sage/10g with an i9-10980xe cpu on my next build. I noticed on the ASUS site that the current bios release for this cpu is version 2002, yet I have seen users here with the sage/10g with a patched 3101 bios. May I first ask where are these other bios from and second, which one should I use. I apologize for the noob question.

Bios 3101 has better performance with the 10000 series chips but asus messed up the cfg lock functionality. This should be fixed in the upcoming bios (Cascade lake x refresh boards already have it)
