Dang, wtf?That's where it can get a little confusing.
Thunderbolt-3 uses a USB-C port.
USB-3.2 can use a USB-C port (or type A).
If a device has a USB-C port, that doesn't mean it's a Thunderbolt peripheral.
If you don't specifically see the Lightening Bolt logo next to the port, it's USB.
Many motherboards have USB-C ports... but don't support Thunderbolt.
A motherboard specifically must have a Thunderbolt controller to provide Thunderbolt.
Some motherboards have a Thunderbolt header... which supports using a Thunderbolt add-in-card (Thunderbolt controller).
Many newer USB audio interfaces have a USB-C port... but aren't Thunderbolt.
To confuse matters even more, most USB audio interfaces that have a USB-C port are actually USB-2 devices.
