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.

“Great service, great product, great all-round experience”

“I generally find buying a new PC to be an unpleasant and stressful experience - cowboys system builders are everywhere, quality is gamble at best and post-sales support usually seems to be an afterthought. No, it’s safe to say that traditionally I have not enjoyed the process of buying a PC.

Quiet PC is the sort of company I like to spend my money with. The web site is easy to use, the components are all good, the build quality is rock solid and the service exemplary. After taking delivery of the system I emailed a question to the head of support late one evening and had a helpful reply in my inbox by 09:23 the following morning.

And good lord, the PC is quiet! I purchased it as a replacement gaming PC for my wife, and the difference is extraordinary - I actually opened the case to check that the fans were turning (and yes, they were). Put it like this: while I’m typing this review into a web browser my wife is playing an MMO with graphical settings all set to max, and my PC is making significantly more noise than hers. If you’re tired of your gaming machine screaming when you ask it to do some serious work, take a trip to the Quiet PC web site.

In short, I am delighted both with my purchase and with the level of service that I’ve received from Quiet PC, and I am very pleased to have found a system builder that I can trust. My wife is also very happy, which of course makes me happy too, and I am now in the unusual position of hoping that my own ageing PC breaks soon so that I can justify buying a new one!”
