On the PC, we now have complete "PCIe via Thunderbolt" support.
You must be running an up-to-date install of Win10 and have a motherboard that provides Thunderbolt-4 via USB-C port.
Antelope, RME, MOTU, Presonus, and UA have full "PCIe via Thunderbolt" drivers available.
If the audio interface is Thunderbolt-2, you'll need a Thunderbolt-3 to Thunderbolt-2 adapter. (Thunderbolt-4 can use the same adapter)
All major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.
Most major audio software/hardware is now working well with Windows 11.
