No, I am talking about the 27" TBD (I own one). You do not need Thunderbolt to use the TBD. That Thunderbolt cable on the TBD is the same pinout as a MDP cable and just carries a MDP signal. If you look at reviews of the device I linked you will see review from people using it with a TBD. I certainly could be mistaken and that reviewer is thinking of the ACD?Weasel, are you sure or were you thinking about the 27" LED Cinema display, which looks exactly like the 27" thunderbolt display except for the ports on the back.
OP, you cannot get the ATD to work on your PC unless your PC also has thunderbolt technology. No adapter will make this work. You can, however, get the older LED Cinema display to work with different adapters or cables.
That would be a nice upgrade if you have a PC MOBO with the PCIe slot required and all. Interesting.Asus has a daughter-card that allows you to use an apple TBD with some of their mb and any DP port graphics card.
I thought it was an interesting development and posted about it on the forum this weekend... someone quickly told me it was not interesting at all ...
Well the dock on the back couldnt work if it wasnt thunderbolt...they do still sell the cinema display wich work on anythingThis thread makes me glad I didn't buy an Apple Thunderbolt Display. It seems very one-dimensional. I see that with hardware and software integration, but monitors too? That just seems narrow minded.
Isn't the Cinema Display the same price as the Thunderbolt Display? That's disappointing.Well the dock on the back couldnt work if it wasnt thunderbolt...they do still sell the cinema display wich work on anything
Also to clarify things i have a pc build with a thunderbolt equipped asus z87 deluxe and a thunderbolt display i own does work on that port. But it does not work on the mini dp output from my 7970 graphics card
? ?Well the dock on the back couldnt work if it wasnt thunderbolt...they do still sell the cinema display wich work on anything
Both 27" displays can be found in the refurb store from time/time, same price $799? ?
Where does Apple still sell the Cinema Display?
That was discontinued October 2013, I believe, so the only current Apple-brand display is the TB Display
So, the Cinema Display would be only in Refurb store, that would sell for somewhat less than the current TB Display.
