ASUS Thunderbolt EX 3 PCI Express 3.0 x4 Card

This clever little card allows you to connect multiple Thunderbolt devices in a daisy chain configuration to your PC. Alternatively, it can accommodate up to four full HD monitors.

Features

  1. Breathtaking 40Gbps for fast transfers
  2. A single port integrating Thunderbolt 3
  3. Reversible USB 3.1 Type-C and DisplayPort 1.2
  4. Supports USB Power Delivery specification for fast charging

The ASUS Thunderbolt EX 3 PCIe card adds Thunderbolt 3 compatibility to your PC allowing you to achieve breathtaking file transfers of up to 40Gbps, which is twice the speed of Thunderbolt 2 and four times faster than USB3.1. The Thunderbolt 3 / USB3.1 Type-C port is also capable of outputting a display signal meaning you can daisy chain up to four monitors at 1900 x 1080 resolution.

Daisy chain away

The card allows for multiple devices to be connected by daisy chaining them together. The image below shows just what is capable with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. It shows six Thunderbolt devices and a single 4K display, all connected to the single Thunderbolt port. Please note that each device requires Thunderbolt in and out ports and the necessary cables to allow them to be daisy chained together.

Connectivity

The card has a total of three accessible ports. We’ve already mentioned the Thunderbolt / USB3.1 Type-C ports above but it also features a standard USB3.1 Type-A port for connecting standard USB devices. There is also a mini-DisplayPort port which is used when a display(s) is connected to the chain. Included with the card is a mini-DisplayPort to standard DisplayPort cable. This needs to be connected to the mini-DisplayPort port on the card and then to a standard DisplayPort port of your output device. This can either be the onboard graphics or a discrete graphics card.

Finally the “TB Header” is connected to the “TB_HEADER” port on the motherboard with the supplied cable. Thunderbolt support has to be enabled in the motherboard’s BIOS. Please refer to your motherboard’s manual for further instructions.

“Service downunder”

“I purchased an UltraNUC (NUC8i7BEH) Pro 8 Fanless based on the Akasa Turing chassis. It was shipped to Tasmania. Purchased 29th May 2019 and arrived 11th June in good shape (would have been the 10th but the Queen had a birthday - happy birthday Your Majesty).

It was easy to purchase the computer and track the parcel once it was shipped. Upon opening the box I found that they had included all the appropriate manuals and remaining thermal paste. Nice!

The computer is silent (obviously) and the Turing keeps things relatively cool, at least based on my early assessment. I installed Ubuntu 18.04 without any problems (my first dedicated linux machine).

Nice work Quiet PC!”
