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!

Re: Mac Pro monitor options ...

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.
