    Performance difference difference Cinema Display vs Thunderbolt

    blakekimmel Level 1

      Hello All,

       

      I am wondering if there is any disadvantage from a GPU performance perspective of using an older Apple Cinema Display (2010, 27" version) via Mini Display Port instead of a Thunderbolt Display. I am upgrading to a 2013 Mac Pro and am wondering if my older monitor will suffice. In other words, is there any performance disadvantage to be connected via Mini Display Port & USB as opposed to Thunderbolt or should I see the same playback, rendering & encoding times as a newer monitor.

       

      Thanks,
