Mac Mini 2012 10.15.6

Asus ROG XG station 2

Sapphire Pulse RX 580 8GB

Cables: Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter

 Thunderbolt 2 cable

SIP disabled, Purge-wrangler installed

 

Running purge with the gpu doesn't detect a gpu, re-seated the gpu twice in the socket. both with the gpu on, and starting it during install

Installed it anyway..

 

My issue, is that it's not detecting.. and if I go to the thunderbolt section of about this mac/devices it does read out the box is connected but the link state seems to be 0x2. current link width 0x1

 

Tried a bunch of stuff, and I'm mystified at what's going on.. any ideas?

Cable Matters thunderbolt 2

It's the square one on both ends
