Akitio Node on Apple Thunderbolt Display ?
I believe it should be possible, but you will be essentially using the Thunderbolt display with the same penalty (and potential issues) as a laptop user would be if they wanted to render on the internal display. The issue is that there is no way to connect a Thunderbolt display to a video card directly, so you will have both the eGPU and the monitor connected to your machine. The video card will render and then send the image back to the nMP, which then will send it to the display.

I connected a 24" Cinema Display with a female Mini-displayport to male Displayport adapter straight to a Node. I don't think this adapter will work on a Thunderbolt Display.
There are however also 27" Cinema Displays.
I wonder how it works inside a nMP, how does the Thunderbolt display connect to the GPU?
