Description Harald Rudell 2021-02-10 16:40:43 UTC
Ubuntu 20.04 on Macmini8,1 Mac mini (2018) 
2xusb-a ports off Cannon Lake works at 5 Gb/s
4xusb-c ports of Titan Ridge 4C 2018: 10 Gb/s inoperative, only slower devices are detected

dmesg --human --follow does not detect devices being plugged in if the device selects a speed higher than 480 Mb/s

Comment 1 Harald Rudell 2021-03-24 19:55:46 UTC
It appears Intel did not bother implementing usb3 bus speeds for Titan Ridge 4C 2018 in their Linux driver that is delivered with the kernel

The world is screwed

https://01.org/ does not respond to inquiries
Comment 2 Harald Rudell 2021-03-24 19:57:46 UTC
At least in the Apple implementation that may have a unique way of addressing DMA security
This chip is also used by Dell an others
Comment 3 Harald Rudell 2021-12-18 23:06:37 UTC
What is not working is hotplug of any device 5+ Gb/s on Apple computers with Intel cpu, 2016+

At boot time, devices are recognized by efi firmware. After that, any unplugged device is gone until again plugged in during boot
