I own a MacBook Pro 15" 2015 with a Thunderbolt 2 port. I have recently bought a Samsung cj791 Thunderbolt 3 monitor (3440 x 1440 @ 100Hz; 85W Power Delivery)
I plan on connecting the monitor to my Mac using: a) A Thunderbolt 3 male to Thunderbolt 2 female adapter and b) a regular Thunderbolt 2 cable
These are my questions:
- Will this work at all (I have read it didn't before High Sierra)?
- Will I be able to go up to the full 100Hz this way at the full resolution? (Another post said TB 2 works with 4K @ 60HZ which is the same data rate - a little more even)
- I have read connecting 2.0 USB peripherals through the monitor is possible, does TB 2 also support USB 3.0 throughput?
