It's more about your motherboard, and whether or not, IF it supports thunderbolt, that it is also compatible with your interface/brand drivers.

I used Gigabyte boards and DIY computer builds and I have been using thunderbolt 2 and 3 for several years by now.

My "safe bet" was to buy the motherboards listed by Universal Audio as "officially tested/supported." Both of mine work great.
I looked at the UAD list as well and took a chance building a custom 'hackintosh' PC following the hardware guidelines from www.tonymacx86.com

It successfully runs 2 Quantum interfaces under Windows 10. This is the motherboard I am using =

The Quantum works as well with my MacBook Pro but I have not attempted running it on the 'hackintosh' hardware + macOS yet. Only hiccup so far was going to macOS Catalina. I would wait a little longer to upgrade if you are using Quantum and don't have access to Windows 10 at the studio. Presonus is working on it.
