Intel has updated TB3 driver to 17.2.71.250.   It has Boot Camp support now.  It does not support TB 1, TB2, Win 7, or Win 8 anymore.

Added support for Apple* Boot Camp in Secure Connect mode (SL1) per Intel.

I've been having issues with all thunderbolt 3 devices on Boot camp (they all worked on Macos, but not on windows). Could this solve my issue?

@chocomonsters Thank you very much for letting us know. I'm not clear reading the release note whether version 17.1.64.250 or 17.2.71.250 is the one with added Apple Boot Camp support.

It was added in 17.1.64.250 so it should also be in 17.2.71.250, but this is Intel so who knows.  😀

What's curious is that this driver is for the NUC and not for Apple products so it's odd that Boot Camp support would be listed.  As we know, many TB drivers are system/platform specific and installing drivers on a system it wasn't intended for has a habit of breaking Thunderbolt completely.  I've always relied on Apple to provide driver updates for Boot Camped Win10, using generic drivers has led to some ugly situations.

Very interested if someone has tried any of this with success in Bootcamp?  I think I need to update my Aorus GB because my H2D is 12xxx according to CUDA.

Thanks for sharing this stuff man.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
