    They told us it would come and now the first is announced.

    Thunderbolt 3 add-in Cards for AMD Motherboards are comming (at least at Gigabyte).

    Even I, might start using Thunderbolt3 in the foreseeable future

    Asus X99 Deluxe 2 has also been supporting Thunderbolt 3 also

    Yes, but the X99 Deluxe 2 is not an AMD motherboard. ASUS and Gigabyte already have a couple Intel based TB3 boards... This Gigabyte motherboard linked above is not only a first for TB3 on an AMD board, its a first for Thunderbolt of any flavor on AMD. Mostly due to Intel’s new licensing system and increased demand from consumers. ASUS will be bringing TB3 to AMD boards as well, I don’t have specifics just yet.

    Some rumours Apple may go to AMD for the new MacPro, this would make it totally feasible

    Yep, but I don't know if it's good news.

    Even the intel boards don't have thunderbolt on the high-end motherboards(X299).

    It looks like Thunderbolt is the new FireWire.

    I've got several x299 systems with TB3.

    Which x299 boards have native TB3?
    Since it's the best interface ever it should be on all, but I can't find them.

    Found on Gigabyte X299 Designare EX

    Computex will have some combo USB-C/Thunderbolt products, but the industry focus is going to be on USB 3.X/USB-C for the foreseeable future, because it's everywhere and USB-C is the new connector of choice for phones and tablets. The product announcements for Computex are starting to roll in and thus far, Thunderbolt's latest is not making any real headway in the market compared to USB-C's adoption growth in currently shipping and soon to be shipping products. We'll see where things are in a month, when the show rolls around and the product announcements are done.

    Yeah, I got the Designare AMD board, because of the TB announcement.
    Looks like they ditched the plans for the add on card though.
