Hello, I am trying to set up my Thunderbolt devices in the optimal configuration on my Mac Pro 6,1. Most research I have done suggests you not connect displays and storage on the same bus, which I have to do. Here are the devices I am connecting via Thunderbolt: Dell U2718Q monitor AOC HD monitor Apogee Element 24 (audio interface-its speed is 10Gb/s) 2 UAD-2 Satellites (essentially external PCIe cards with DSP chips for audio processing-20 Gb/s) OWC Drive Dock with two Samsung 2.5 SATA III SSDs (Thunderbolt connection to the computer-SATA III drive connector) UAD says this about connecting Thunderbolt devices to the Mac Pro: Thunderbolt port, and in most cases connecting six devices will not come close to exceeding the bandwidth of a Thunderbolt 2 bus - for example, up to four Thunderbolt Apollo interfaces and two UAD-2 Satellites could be daisy chained off of a single Thunderbolt port without exceeding the bandwidth of the Thunderbolt bus. With that in mind, here is how I have my devices connected to the Mac Pro's three Thunderbolt busses: Bus 1: Port 1: Apogee Element 24 Port 2: 2 UAD-2s Daisy chained Bus 2: Port 1: Dell U2718Q Port 2: empty Bus 0 Port 1: OWC Drive Dock HDMI Port: AOC monitor (resolution 1080p) Based on the recommendation from UAD and what I have read about 4k monitors, I think busses 1 and 2 are optimally configured. Since I have read that one should not place storage and displays on the same bus, my concern is Bus 0, which has the Drive Dock and the AOC monitor. I really don't see any other way to connect the AOC monitor and the Drive Dock, and I have not noticed any problems. Besides trying to optimally configure the Thunderbolt devices, my question is educational for me. That is, testing the idea whether storage and displays cannot share the same bus happily. Thanks for your thoughts.
