I'm wondering why this isn't developed? I mean it makes no sense. Is there something that doesnt allow TB 3 not to be able to throttle down to TB 2 Speeds?

Just crazy when I have 4 Thunderbolt 2 OWC Raid 5's machines and it would cost me $200+ in just dongles to connect to my new MacPro

Heck not even a PCI Card for the MacPro like 2 TB 2 and 2 TB 3

Thunderbolt 2 users copper wire, thunderbolt 3 uses fiber optics, it just won't work.

I did not know that. Good to know. Especially in cable care.
