    1. Not needed as it is a normal USB 3 interface. I have had no issues with XQD cards on my M1 since day 1.

      1. It is true that the standard Sony XQD reader does work but the newer Thunderbolt 3 XQD card readers like Prograde or Altech will not work without new Sony drivers.

        When I upgrade my MacBook I had hoped to optimize my peripherals as well.

        thanks for you answer.
