GC-Titan Ridge Rev 2.0 Thunderbolt 3. USB-C 3.2 – Super fast! Flashed for Mac Pro or Hackintosh and also works in Windows. A Windows boot is not needed to work in macOS. Boot screen for your video card included (optional bonus). As an alternative to the Titan, the slightly older, less powerful Alpine Ridge also offers Thunderbolt 3 found here. This includes everything you need to make it work – including a jumper cable. If you have a modern AMD video card like a Sapphire RX-580 – I also include software to give you a boot screen as well as hardware acceleration (you will notice the speed difference, but is completely optional). MOST IMPORTANTLY – I work hand-in-hand with several other programmers to constantly update and make things better. I include a Dropbox link with several different software versions – depending on your usage/situation. I work with musicians, photographers, and video editors, and it’s my passion to allow you to do your job as efficiently as possible. We are constantly testing to make this card compatible with most Thunderbolt devices. If you have a question about a particular Thunderbolt device, please ask. If you already have a Titan Ridge card and would like it flashed- see my other listing for flash service. Do I need Windows to make this work? Just boot to macOS as you normally do. What’s the difference between the Titan Ridge and the Alpine Ridge? The Titan Ridge is newer, more powerful, and has a DisplayPort (no HDMI port). The Alpine Ridge is older and has an HDMI port (no DisplayPort). The TR has two PCIe power ports and a USB 2.0 header (Alpine does not have these ports). This makes the TR more powerful if you have more demanding, power hungry devices. The Alpine Ridge provides 36 watts while the Titan Ridge provides 100 watts. The newer JHL7x40 series, Titan Ridge, is a successor to the, Alpine Ridge, JHL6x40 series and comprises of three controllers. Of the three, JHL7540 and JHL7340 provide the same 40 Gbps TB3 bandwidth while adding support for the DisplayPort 1.4 specification for increased video performance. What if I already have a USB add-in card like a Sonnet? This is faster and will replace your USB add-in card. It works with all USB devices very smoothly. We were impressed with the benchmark tests. If you would like to have both running at the same time- we have found that some Sonnet USB cards will work along with the Titan and some conflict. Will my Universal Audio Apollo work? Will this work with Luna? Yes, but with a caveat. It seems that it’s not possible to work on a Mac Pro 2012 or older, but at no fault of the Titan Ridge card. Luna is simply not compatible with a 2012 cMP (or older) due to a missing CPU instruction set. We’re looking for a workaround. A script could possibly be made to fix this. On a Hackintosh, Luna works with a CPU around 2013 and newer. If in question- contact me. Will this work on a Mac Pro 7,1? Will this work on a Mac Pro 5,1? Will this work on a Mac Pro 4,1? Yes Will this work on a Mac Pro 3,1? Will this work with external drives? Yes – they work very will, in general. Will this work with an Apple Thunderbolt Display (TB1)? Still researching, but one user has reported that it’s intermittent. On one bootup it will display and then the next it may not. All other Thunderbolt displays, if they are TB2 or TB3, will work. Will this work with Thunderbolt 3 devices? Will this work with Thunderbolt 2 devices? Will this work with Thunderbolt 1 devices? Most devices, but not all. We’re looking for a workaround, but it may not be possible. LaCie TB1 drives work great using an Apple TB3 (USB-C) to TB2 adapter – external drives work well in general. The Promise Pegasus R6 (RAID Enclosure) does not work. Will this work with Antelope Audio? Antelope Orion 32+ via USB-C (not Thunderbolt) and Discreet 8 both work. The Orion Studio Synergy TB3, unfortunately, does not work because it uses a TB Node – If your Antelope Audio uses a Thunderbolt Node to connect with the Titan Ridge, it shows up, but will not work. The Titan Ridge will work with all of the following. Focusrite Clarett 8Pre (X). Akitio Node Pro Thunderbolt 3. Elgato Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock. Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock. Belkin Thunderbolt 1 Dock. The Titan Ridge does not work with all of the following. We are constantly testing new devices and will continue to update this listing as we learn what does and doesn’t work. We have found that adding a hub or dock along with the Titan Ridge card, improves compatibility and ability to hot swap. Tested Operating Systems that work. MacOS 10.15: Catalina – Present. MacOS 10.14: Mojave – 2018. MacOS 10.13: High Sierra – 2017. MacOS 10.12: Sierra – 2016. OS X 10.11: El Capitan – 2015. OS X 10.10: Yosemite – 2014. OS X 10.9 Mavericks – 2013. I have not tested Mountain Lion or earlier. I have not tested a 2,1 or a 1,1 cMP. I’m here to help and make sure your system is running as smoothly as possible.
