So I've been using the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter for years to connect to a DELL 3007WFP which only supports dual-link DVI input. Now I want to connect the new macbook pro (late 2016) with thunderbolt 3 to this monitor.
There is no such thing as thunderbolt 3 to dual-link dvi. Called Apple and after one hour on the phone they told me to buy a thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 adapter in order to connect to the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter. After a trip to the Apple Store and $29 less in my wallet that's for sure did not work!
So now I'm wondering: man can go and go back from the moon, but it can't make this work? I don't want to have to buy another monitor to use with the new macbook pro :(
Has anyone successfully got that to work? Which adapters? How did you connect them?
