Hi,

I have a Mantiz Venus e-gpu box and HP Proliant DL380 Gen9 Server unit. As you know some GPU cards doesn't fit in a server or doesnt change quickly so want to connect Mantiz Venus via Thunderbolt3.

Do you know or use any PCI-e based Thunderbolt3 card for servers?

Gigabyte Titan-Ridge add-in card would be your best bet.

Thank you for your suggestion. When I examined the device, I saw that it was connected to the THB-C port on the motherboard. Is there a requirement to make this connection? Or is it enough to connect only through PCI-e?

It depends on the motherboard firmware I guess.

Here's an example using the add-in card in a computer that was made before Thunderbolt existed:

Here's examples using the add-in card on AMD systems which were never meant to use Thunderbolt (by Intel):

There are future AMD boards that will allow fully functional Thunderbolt.

The add-in card may work in other systems such as the HP server. But it won't be fully functional (similar to above examples).
