    Does anyone know ... If I were to buy a new Mac Pro, could I connect my old (working) 27" 5K iMac to use it as a monitor? If so, how would that work? What cable connections would work? (My 2015 iMac only has Thunderbolt 2 ports) I assume I would have to power up the iMac, even to just use it as a monitor, right? So, that wouldn't be very energy efficient, but with the cost of new 5K monitors ... wow!
    Please advise if this is feasible! Thanks!

    You probably could, but you may need an adapter of some sort and then the driver for the adapter, but I’ll let those who has a Mac Pro and a 4K monitor provide a definitive answer for you.
