Successfully installed Big Sur 11.0.1 with Wifi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 - OpenCore 0.6.4

OpenCore 0.6.4 made it all happen. Works very nicely, all USBs (Even the red one - think it's 3.1 and USB-C), sleep, shut down, iMessage, even Dynamic wallpaper works and it doesn't work on my MacBook Pro 😁

CPU: Intel i7-9700k
GPU: RX 5700 XT with 2 x 4k monitors over DP
RAM: 32GB Kingston
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370 HD3P
Audio Codec: ALC1220
Ethernet Card: Intel GbE LAN
Wifi/BT Card: Archer TX50E
BIOS revision: F10
Guide: https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/

Specifically, I wanted to post this because of Wifi + Bluetooth. Archer TX50E is a beautiful card with with Intel AX3000, and is super fast on Windows. On Big Sur, I got it working with itlwm and IntelBluetoothFirmware kexts. I wasn't expecting that because the card didn't work on Catalina, but since Big Sur introduced Wifi 6 support, it became possible.

Only issue I do have with the build at the moment is audio input over Bluetooth. However, that is a 'known limitation' at the moment with IntelBluetoothFirmware. Hopefully there will be a fix at some point mostly because of AirPods - I can't use them for calls.
