I bought the D just for Thunderbolt. Works well, but not as fast transferring large files as the TB on my Mac.
Note to those thinking of buying. The M.2 shields do not work for what they are intended. They make SSDs run hotter than with them off. I have 4 different ones, mainly used for storage. My 970 Evo is my boot drive, I also tried the Sabrent Rocket, the Corsair MP510 and the WD SN750, all 1TB drives except the Sabrent (2TB) and all run ~10C higher with the SSD covers on.

Its a decent board, but the drivers for TB on the Windows platform could use some finesse. It should transfer as fast as my 2020 iMac according to Intel, but it is definitely slower. Overall though. Its a good board, running Intel i9-10850k, 32GB DDR4 3600, Sapphire Radeon RX5700XT Nitro+ all wrapped in a Bequiet PureBase 500DX
