New Thunderbolt card that works in classic Mac Pro—who here has an Apple 27" Tb display for testing?

This guy demonstrates the card, but he's using equipment that many people neither would own nor use in the first place. What I am curious about is whether or not one can get a 27" Apple Thunderbolt display working with his Mac Pro. As you all may know, the 2011 Apple Thunderbolt display works only with Apple products that have built-in Thunderbolt. The display was released 8 years ago, but it is still completely viable in 2019, given its resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, its fine webcam/mic, and its sufficient built-in speakers.

Imagine using one of those great displays with this computer! Do any of you guys own this new card already (or are planning to buy it)?

Isn't this the same method that has been described on this forum several times? It is not native macOS. Needs Windows boot to initialize, then soft reboot into macOS.

Would suggest you check the other TB on cMP threads for more detailed reports.
