    Disappointing speed of TB3 CFExpress card reader BlackJet TX-1CXQ

    I recently bought the BlackJet TX-1CXQ reader. With its Thunderbolt 3 interface (allowing bus transfer speeds of up to 40Gb/s), I was hoping this reader would allow the full potential speed out of my 1750MB/s CFExpress card (Lexar LCFX10-256CRB). I am aware these numbers are top speeds, but...
