Well, i guess you solved your problem by now, but I still wanted to answer, since I recently looked into eGPU options myself. If your sole aim is to run a 4K monitor (and your GPU doesn't support it), you could probably also get a USB graphics adapter. You find a selection here. This certainly is a much cheaper option, but probably too slow to watch ...

Updated Answer: Okay, It just dawned on me I have the hardware here to test daisy-chaining two FireWire devices at the end of the Thunderbolt daisy-chain and it did work. I have access to all devices in the chain, both Thunderbolt and FireWire. I could not test with FireWire devices in the middle of the chain as I'm short a cable/adapter for an in the ...

Your setup will not work. You must have separate FireWire and Thunderbolt chains, and not connect devices to both interfaces simultaneously.

You should be able to and it may be a limitation of the system you are on or any intermediary devices. Here's my setup: Dell Precision M3800 with nvidia Quadro K1100m graphics. Connected out of the Thunderbolt port (by a mDisplay port cable) to a Dell U3014 monitor which is connected to another U3014 (by a full size Display port cable). I had to enable ...

According to this document https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204154 The MacBook Pro (15-inch and 17-inch, Early 2011) and later have Thunderbolt2 and can handle two thunderbolt displays (2560x1440). According to this document https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202856 The MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013 and later) can handle one MST 4K display at ...

OWC Brittany C: there is a limitation on using a Thunderbolt device and Windows 7. Having a Thunderbolt device plugged in when trying to boot to Windows 7 will prevent boot. Also the machine will not detect a Thunderbolt device in Windows 7 unless it is plugged in upon start up. So basically thunderbolt devices are not going to work in Windows 7. You would ...

Given no detail on the Samsung display, it seems like you should be able to. Thunderbolt ports can handle Displayport connections. The tech specs for the machine claim 3x5k, so a single 4k should be fine. You'll need a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. Read about Single Stream (SST) and Multi Stream (MST) displays here: Using 4K displays and Ultra HD ...

It's possible. You can run one monitor off the HDMI port and another 2 off of the Thunderbolt ports. You can get adapters for both of these. There's more out there than this but here's one Apple sells. http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MB570LL/B/mini-displayport-to-dvi-adapter BTW: Thunderbolt ports can work Mini Display port adapters.

In theory you should not loose too much speed. Most modern SSDs utilize SATA 6 Gbit/s SSD controllers which support 500 MB/s read/write speeds. Thunderbolt 2 works at a theoretical 20 Gbit/s. So Thunderbolt2 should not be the bottleneck. However.. Macworld did a performance analysis in 2011. It was a test on Thunderbolt 1, but it should still might give you ...

Copper-based Thunderbolt cables are limited to max length of 3 meters. Corning sells optical Thunderbolt cables you will need for the distance you specify here. You can get 10m lengths at Amazon for US$299. They come in 30m and 60m lengths for US$659 and US$1299, respectively. I haven't had the need for these lengths yet, but I did the research a few weeks ...

Do NOT use the HDMI video output! Please buy a Mini DisplayPort cable connect your MacBook and U2715H.

This might be the reason. Mozilla blocks Flash in Firefox browser as Adobe issues emergency patch for latest security exploits as of July 14, 2015 / 8:15 am While the block doesn’t completely prevent Firefox users from using Flash, it does mean users will have to actively click-to-enable the plugin.

I have a Samsung 540 EVO 1TB drive running with a Seagate Thunderbolt adapter - and the performance is stunning. Way faster than USB3. The Thunderbolt SSD option is very nice for loading and entire OS and using it on different machines.

Unfortunately I don't think what you want is possible unless one of your displays is a Thunderbolt display. See, for example, this FAQ on the Caldigit site (I'm guessing that most third party docks use similar technology internally, hence the link) as well as this quote from the product page: Note about dual displays: At least one display has to be ...

I took a look at Belkin's website on this particular product and they clearly state that it "Supports dual displays & 4K cinema resolution." Now, there is no "Thunderbolt" to DVI/HDMI because Thunderbolt is an extension of PCIe. So, in a very basic sense, this would be like trying to plug your monitor in directly to the logic board and not go through ...

I had exactly the same problem, with the same monitor, Dell U2713 / U2713H / U2713HM / U2713HMt. I had two of them plugged in to my late-2014 Retina Macbook Pro 15" and only one was experiencing the problem. I tried 100s of different solutions (I can say for sure it's definitely not the cable!) and nothing worked. Just like you, I could get landscape ...

I know what your trying to ask here. When you do you speed test are you downloading the movie at the same time? If yes then the mbps will consistently change so when your over wifi and when your switching back to ethernet. If your were not downloading a movie when doing the speed test there is the difference already, when toe downloading something it using ...

I'm having a similar issue with a 2011 13" MBP8,1 (2.7Ghz i7 CPU and HD3000 graphics), and to me it's pretty certain that it's provoked by video-intensive operations. Curiously, Hardware Monitor showed temperatures in the 70C range, quite far from the 90+C temperatures I've already seen while running big compile jobs. I removed the bottom plate and removed ...

This is a design feature documented by Apple. You need to cool your Mac and the processor can then speed up again and do the work you want. See this post on ideas for cooling while in clamshell mode. Any reason not to run my Macbook Pro upside-down in clamshell mode? Open the clamshell and make sure there is good ventilation and you are not blocking the ...
