Just got it to see, it's almost May 2023, and there is no updated driver at all for this, it will not work with M1 chips, Sony's driver specifically says it will only work on up to High Sierra OS to boot.

The Disclaimer is confusing. Will this work for both CFExpress and XQD on a late-2016 MacBook Pro? My Mac doesn't "say" whether it's Thunderbolt 2 or 3 other than it reports that speed is "up to 40Gb/s x1"
Asked by: Martin
The Apple Thunderbolt 3 Male to Thunderbolt 2 Female Adapter will not work to connect bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 peripherals to older computers with TB1 or TB2 ports. The reason being bus-powered TB3 devices can use up to 15W of power but TB1 or TB2 port can only provide up to 10W by spec.

This Card Reader mentions that it works with CFexpress Type B 1.0 version cards. I own the Angelbird 1TB AV Pro CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card. Since the card I have is a 2.0 version card and not 1.0 version, will it be compatible with this card reader? Lastly, will this Thunderbolt 3 interface communicate and be compatible with a Thunderbolt 4 port on my computer?
Asked by: Corey
According to the manufacturer, the the Atech Flash Technology Blackjet TX-1CXQ CFexpress Type B / XQD Thunderbolt 3 Card Reader supports any version of CFexpress Type B cards, so it would be compatible for use with the Angelbird 1TB AV Pro CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card. Also, they state the card reader is compatible for use with both Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 ports.
