    As title, is there any TB3 to TB2 straight through cables?

    I want to plug my new MBP into my 2012 iMac for target display.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, no cables like that are out (and probably won't be). Best thing to use is the Apple TB2-3 adapter as it works in both directions.

    Well I wish someone would make one. Now I need two cables instead of one.

    Even if someone made an all-in-one cable rather than the hub-like devices that are on the market today, the cable will still be bulbous and visually similar to the Apple adapter connected to a TB2 cable anyway: the big plastic shell isn't empty! :p
