Apple Thunderbolt Display compatibility
I know you this isn't specifically eGPU but I consider this place to be the home of Thunderbolt wizards (lol) and folks who are highly informed about thunderbolts capability/compatibility. So here goes; So I've come into a Mac Thunderbolt Display and want to try to use it with my Windows PC. I have working theory that I would able to throw a TB3 add in card (motherboard is compatible far as I can tell, has a TB3 header on the mobo) and pass through GPU signal to the mac display via the TB3 card. I also plan on using an Apple TB2 to TB3 adapter. Relevant system specs are as follows:
Core i3 9100f
MSI b360m Pro VDH motherboard
@tnywatkns, A more affordable solution is to get an older Thunderbolt 1/2 AIC such as ASUS ThunderboltEX II. You don't need to Thunderbolt card to be fully functional at all. Simply provide it slot power then feed a DisplayPort stream and it should be able to product Thunderbolt monitor output.
@itsage, Thank you for the solution! I apologize for the late reply as well. Another question if I may, how well would a TB3 version of this solution work? I'm having a hard time finding that model of card on ebay for a decent price.
