So the PCB came yesterday and it looks super pretty! It's a 4 layer board with impedance control.
Also thanks to JLCPCB for sponsoring the board.

The best part is, after soldering it together, it was actually working! Well everything except for DisplayPort.

A friend suggested that I used the pin layout for a DP Sink instead of a DP Source. Who knew that existed! So you have the layout reversed depending on whether you transmit or receive the signal.
I tried reversing the connector but that unfortunately did not change anything. Will have to further investigate why.
