    Hi guys,

    I'm currently using a mid 2010 Mac Pro with an Apple 27" LED Cinema Display (not Thunderbolt). I'm thinking of upgrading to a late 2013 Mac Pro and was wondering if i can use my display with this new Mac Pro? Is there some kind of adapter i can use to connect the Mini-Display Port to the 2013 Mac Pro's USB3, Thunderbolt or HDMI ports? If so, what would be the best way to go with this?

    Thanks!

    Thunderbolt 1 and 2 is fully compatible with the DisplayPort standard. Furthermore, Thunderbolt 1 and 2 uses the same physical connector as Mini DisplayPort.

    Therefore, no, you will not need to purchase any adapters. It’s just plug and play.
