    Lovely idea, great concept, very interesting features.... but if that poor design and implementation is the 'Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic', I'll likely never buy any of their stuff again!!

    Gigabyte has the Z390 'Designare' motherboard available, which is what I'm planning to base my next system on. It has two TB3 ports...

    It also has DiplayPort 1.4 Input so that the Thunderbolt ports can utilise extrenal graphics card processing. This brings support for 8K via the USB-C ports, which means the Thunderbolt chipset might be the new Titan Ridge.
