Would be nice to see a review of external Thunderbolt3/PCIe-M.2 enclosures to see how they compare in performance and price to the turn-key solutions.

Test's were on an Intel-based Windows system with an ASRock Thunderbolt 3 AIC. It isn’t compatible with USB Type C ports. Instead, it will only work with true TB3 ports.

As per the review:
"You'll need to use the supplied cable and a true Thunderbolt 3 port. We tried using a USB Type C cable we had in the lab, but it didn’t work with the Evlvr. We also tried using the drive in a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C port, but we were greeted with a “Thunderbolt device functionality might be limited” popup notification and the Evlvr didn’t show up in Windows Explorer or disk management."
